Ever heard of Sawdust Pie? I hadn’t until visiting western Kentucky several weeks ago. During a dinner that I attended, I was offered several desserts, but was interested to know what this pie was like. Evidently, it is one of the specialties at a popular restaurant called “Patti’s” in that area. It was so good that I had to figure out a recipe to replicate at home.
This pie is super fast and easy to make. Putting bananas under the layer of whipped cream is optional, but I definitely recommend doing it. Save a few crumbs from your graham crackers to sprinkle over the top to make it look pretty!
- 1 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 cup coconut, flaked
- 1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1 1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
- 7 egg whites, unbeaten
- 9 inch unbaked pie shell
- Whipped cream
- Sliced bananas
