Coconut Pecan Torte......

Here is a recipe from the 50's. It is a no cholesterol dessert and very good. Call it a vintage recipe if you like, but it is one I grew up with and it is so easy. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Coconut Pecan Torte
1 cup graham crackers (crushed)
1/2 cup coconut, shredded
1/2 pecan meats, chopped
4 egg whites, beaten till foamy
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Mix the first three ingredients and set aside. Beat the egg whites till foamy and add the salt, sugar and vanilla. Then mix the two mixtures together and pour into a 9 inch pie pan. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes.
Till next time......
