Preheat oven to 350º. Grease 9×13 pan – I use Pam. Whip egg whites to stiff peaks then add vanilla and baking powder. Slowly add sugar. Fold in crackers and nuts. Spread in pan and bake for 30 minutes. Cool overnight. Top with whipped cream and Danish Dessert. (See box above. If you’ve never made it, you’ll wonder why after you see how easy and tasty it is. You can add 2-3 cups of fresh or frozen berries to make this dessert even better. I like the frozen tri-berry mix from Costco.)
Hint: There’s another recipe for this dessert floating around the Internet. The ingredients vary by adding an extra cup of cracker crumbs and substituting 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar for the baking powder. You know the old adage, “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it?” I tried that recipe last night and it wasn’t nearly as good.
