This is the time of year I look for unusual but easy recipes. Love the idea of using saltine crackers in a desert.
Ingredients 2 cups Milk 2 beaten Egg Yolks 1/4 cup Sugar 1/2 cup Shredded Coconut 1 tsp Vanilla 2 Egg Whites 1/4 dash Sugar 1 cup Coarsely Crushed Saltine Crackers
In a saucepan gradually stir milk into egg yolks, add 1/4 cup sugar. Cook and stir over medium heat till thick and bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in crackers, coconut and vanilla. Pour into a 1 quart casserole dish. Beat egg whites till soft peaks form, very gradually add 1/2 cup sugar, beat till stiff peaks form. Spread egg white meringue over hot pudding. Bake at 350 for 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool to serve warm or cold.
