Original recipe yields 1 - 9 inch pie plate



  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Mix the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter, or margarine together. Set aside 3 tablespoons of the crumbs for the topping. Press the remaining crumbs into one 9 inch pie plate.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 10 minutes. Cool then chill in freezer. Fill the chilled crust with the firm vanilla ice cream. Place in freezer.
  4. Beat egg whites until frothy, add salt, almond extract and slowly add sugar, beating until stiff and glossy. Spread over ice cream, sealing edges. Sprinkle with remaining crumbs. Place under broiler 500 degrees F (260 degrees C) for 2 minutes. Serve at once.

This is a favorite and very quick to prepare. My only comment is 2 minutes for the meringue under the broiler can be too long ... you need to watch that carefully. The first time we made it, we just set a timer for 2 minutes and the meringue burnt ... we had to start all over. The 2nd time we kept an eye on it and took it out at about the minute point and it was perfect.



this turned out pretty good, but we had to try the meringue part 3 times. a whole tsp of vanilla extract is too much, and makes the meringue fall flat/stops it from becoming stiff. a single drop is MORE than enoguh!



Pretty good, but next time WAY less salt, perhaps none. Then I feel this would be a 5 star recipe.
