My grandmother used to make this and gave me the recipe. They served it also at the old Wyatt's cafeteria (in Houston, Texas) years ago. But the recipe contained 1 c. pecans instead of black walnuts and was topped with unsweetened, vanilla flavored whipped cream (no sugar needed with the sweet pie underneath). Excellant!

My Mom didn't enjoy baking and this was one of the few desserts she made fairly frequently - always with Ritz crackers. It's fool-proof -delicious and so great with real whipped cream!
