An amazingly popular restaurant here in Kentucky is Patti’s 1880’s Settlement in Grand Rivers. One of the things that helped make them famous is their pies. Below is a recipe for one called a Sawdust Pie. You’ll love it much…much…muchly!
7 egg whites, unbeaten
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1-1/2 cups pecans
1-1/2 cups coconut
9 inch unbaked pie shell
Mix all ingredients together and stir by hand. Pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake in preheated 325 degree oven until glossy and set (about 25-30 minutes).
DO NOT OVERBAKE! Serve warm with sliced bananas and whipped cream. Serves 8.
