Date Nut Pie

A little bit like a less sweet nougat? With ice cream? I can’t wrap my head around it, so I might have to make it.

From a box sold in Columbiaville, Michigan.

Date Nut Pie

12 soda crackers, crushed
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
12 dates, chopped
3 egg whites
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 pt. vanilla ice cream

Combine crackers, nuts, and dates. Beat egg whites until frothy; add baking powder. Continue beating, adding sugar gradually until mixture forms stiff peaks. Beat in vanilla. Fold cracker mixture into egg whites. Spoon into greased 9″ pie pan. Bake at 325 deg. 25-30 minutes. Fill with spoonfuls of vanilla ice cream.
