10-20 Saltine crackers, crushed
3 egg whites
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup chopped walnuts
Whipped cream for serving
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat egg whites until frothy then gradually add the sugar while the mixer is going. Continue to beat until egg whites are shiny and firm (like making meringue). Fold in the cracker crumbs and walnuts and scoop batter out into a greased 8" pan.
Bake for 45-50 minutes until golden brown. Let cool and serve with whipped cream
** the recipe also calls for 8 maraschino cherries to be sliced and folded into the torte batter. I did not do this!
