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.

I'm always fascinated by recipes from the era of the Depression. A number of them are quite inventive and tasty, and others range from extremely bland to downright inedible. I'm not sure where this would fall on the spectrum, since a crustless pie is a bit hard for me to visualize. I like dates, and it's simple to assemble, so I may well give this a try and see how it tastes.
