1/2 cup broken walnut meats
Crumble crackers with fingers. Add baking powder and walnuts.
3 egg whites
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Beat egg whites until stiff. Add sugar gradually, beating constantly. Add vanilla.
Combine cracker mixture with egg whites and mix well. Put in a well-buttered 9-inch pyrex baking dish or pie pan. Bake at 350 F for 30-35 minutes (a toothpick inserted should come out dry). Let cool.
1/2 pint heavy cream
sugar to taste
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
Whip cream. Add sugar and almond extract and mix. Pour over the meringue. Refrigerate overnight, well covered.
COMMENT: This is a delicious company dessert and is good to the last leftover.
