Esther Trettin's Ritz Cracker Pie


Old Home Store

Test Kitchen Results...


This recipe was a revelation. Has to be baked before it's believed! Fab texture, but needs the suggested cream / ice cream to eat really well.


From research, it's an old recipe originally made from saltine crackers, usually as a budget dessert when money was tight. Some sources suggest that this version was dreamed up by the Ritz test kitchen when the cracker became a brand leader in the '50s. Pecans seem to be the nut of choice, but used a mix of mostly hazlenuts and almonds above. Yum.
