Brownie Pie

3 egg whites
dash salt
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup fine chocolate wafer crumbs
1/2 cups chopped walnuts
1/2 tsp. vanilla
sweetened whipped cream

Beat egg whites and salt until soft peaks form; gradually add sugar, beating until soft peaks form. Fold in crumbs, nuts, and vanilla; spread evenly in lightly buttered 9-inch pie plate. Bake in slow oven (325 F) about 35 minutes. Cool thoroughly. Spread top with sweetened whipped cream; chill well, 3 to 4 hours. Trim with curls of shaved unsweetened chocolate.

Meredith would ask her Mom, Grandma Sproul, to make this recipe for her. It turns out that this was originally Aunt Lollie's recipe.
