This sounds like one of those old fashioned classic recipes. Those recipes that combine buttery salty Ritz crackers and sugar and pecans are soooo good! I think I'll make this for a work potluck.

This recipe is a real retro throw back. I have never made it myself, but my Grandma use to make this all the time. I know that it might sound odd, as it contains Ritz crackers, but it's actually very good! It's neat because it kind of makes its own crust as it bakes. Super easy and really yummy. I will be giving this version a whirl to surprise my mom! I'm sure she would like to have a taste of Grandma's recipe again.

My mom still makes this pie at 84 yrs old and it's delicious with whipped cream.We also add chopped walnuts and dates to the mixture and it's really good.Try it,it's a real 50's dessert,

I have had the very same recipe since 1962. My grandmother made it and now I make it at least once every 6 weeks. Sometimes when it is still warm, I cover the top with seedless raspbery jam. Then chill and before serving, cover with real whipped cream. It is rich yet fairly light chewy and nutty. Sometimes I use walnuts instead of pecans, or my husband likes apricot jam on his. Even with no jam, its a big hit no matter what!

But how does it taste? is it good?

No pie crust?

No crust needed...it sort of makes its own crusty bottom. I also spray pie pan with cooking spray as mixture is sticky. When baked,the top will be fairly firm. Putting on jam or whipping cream will soften top. You can also cover it with pot lid to keep it steamy for a while when cooling it down. Top will then be softer. Hope this helps

I received this recipe as "Soda Cracker Pie" when I was in home ec. back in the dark ages. The Ritz give it a better flavor and You can add 1/2 cup or more of chocolate chips.............

@cidergeorge: Yes, you can omit the pinch of salt from this recipe if you would like. Hope this helps! - RecipeLion Editors

Can I omit the pinch of salt since I will be using saled Ritz crackers?
