3 egg whites
1 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup crisp round cracker crumbs
1+1/2 cups pecans (chopped)

Beat egg whites until foamy. Add 1 cup sugar a little at a time, beating after each addition. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla. Continue beating until mixture holds soft peaks. Mix cracker crumbs and 1 cup pecans. Fold into meringue mixture a little at a time. Spoon mixture into an 8" pie plate to form a shell.
