Heirloom Soda Cracker Pie
This simple pie recipe has been passed down from generation to generation. Heirloom Soda Cracker Pie is a pie similar to those made during the Depression when apples and other fruits were scarce. Instead, dates, nuts, soda crackers and other ingredients give this pie its texture and sweetness. This easy dessert recipe is also very low-cost because it only uses 6 ingredients. Once the pie sets up, the ingredients hold together on their own so you don't even need a pie crust. It tastes great with ice cream or whipped cream.
