This pie is so delicious you will love making it at home!


  • 4 extra large egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 cup and 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 14 graham cracker squares, broken into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 cup pecan pieces
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • chopped pecans


Heat oven to 300 degrees. Lightly grease a 9-inch pie plate. In a large mixing bowl, beat egg whites and baking powder until soft peaks form. Add cream of tartar, beating constantly. Add 1 cup of the sugar, a tablespoon at a time, beating constantly until stiff peaks form. Using rubber scraper, fold in graham crackers and pecan pieces. Spoon into pie plate.

Bake 30 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely on wire cooling rack.

In a chilled small bowl, using chilled beaters, beat cream just until it begins to thicken. Add remaining 1/4 cup sugar and vanilla and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Do not overbeat. Top pie with whipped cream. Sprinkle with pecans and refrigerate until served.

    This has been my favorite pie my entire life and was devastated when Luby’s quit making it several years ago. So happy to have the recipe.
