this is an old childhood favorite that my mom used to make when my sister and i were little. we called it “mystery pie” because right when people started to eat it, we would reveal the big mystery… “do you know what’s in it?? crackers!” we had a lot of fun with that one

1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder

1. beat the 3 egg whites until they are stiff.
