Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

3 egg whites
few grains salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup chocolate wafer crumbs
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup chilled whipping cream
2 tablespoons sifted confectioner's sugar
1 Hershey bar, chopped

Instructions

Completely grease a 9-inch pie pan. Beat egg whites and salt until frothy. Add sugar gradually, beating well after each addition, continue beating until stiff peaks are formed and egg whites do not slide when bowl is partially inverted. Blend in vanilla extract. Gently fold in wafer crumbs and pecans. Turn into prepared pie pan and spread evenly. Bake at 325 degrees F. for about 35 minutes. Remove to cooling rack and cool completely. Chill a bowl and rotary beater. Using the chilled bowl and beater, beat whipping cream until cream stands in peaks when beater is slowly lifted upright. Beat in confectioner's sugar. Spreak over cooled pie. Garnish with a chopped Hershey bar.
