Mom's Fabulous Saltine Cracker Pie

Updated on August 20, 2012

Deliciousness Scale

5 stars from 3 ratings of Saltine Cracker Pie

My childhood favorite dessert

© May 2012

Mom loves to bake and try out new recipes. This is the one I always begged her to make. Try it and you will see why - It's so delicious!

Prep time looks long but it's not really - The majority of the time listed as prep time is actually refrigeration time that's recommended prior to serving.

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 hours
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 5 hours 20 min
Yields: Serves six (more if sliced thinner)


  • 3 egg whites, beaten
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 12 crushed soda crackers, roll out between plastic wrap
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 large package cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup (skimpy) powdered sugar
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 8 oz. tub Cool Whip, (dairy recipe)
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 can instant cherry pie filling

Crust and Filling

  1. Mix the first seven ingredients together for the crust. Press into a greased pie pan and bake in a 325 degree oven for 20 minutes.
  2. To make the filling, mix the cream cheese with powdered sugar. Whip the whipping cream, then add "or" use most of an 8 ounce tub of Cool Whip dairy recipe and vanilla. Add to cream cheese mixture. Pour filling over cooled crust. After putting the filling in the cooled crust, you can put one can of instant cherry pie filling on top and refrigerate, covered, 5 hours or longer.

      This crust is quite different...sounds easy and I shall have to remember this. The creamy/cherry stuff puts it over the top too! Thank you for sharing this unique recipe.

      Oh my! This sounds good. I remember a Ritz Cracker pie that my mother used to make that tasted a lot like an apple pie, believe it or not. Thanks for passing on your mother's saltine cracker pie recipe. At least the reading of it is calorie free! Haha! Voted interesting and useful. Thanks!
