Sawdust Pie

Marshall, Texas is known for the Marshall Pottery. Next door to the Marshall Pottery is a quaint little restaurant called "The Hungry Potter". We always got a kick out of this because my maiden name is "Potter." I am not even sure if this restaurant is still there.

Anyway, they served a pie that is to die for. It reminds me of a dense pie version of the Magic Bars or the 7 Layer Bars. They would serve it warm a la mode or with fresh whipping cream. This is easy and oh so yummy - the perfect treat for your Valentine!



Sawdust Pie

1 1/2 cups coconut
1 1/2 cups white granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans or walnuts
7 egg whites
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1 uncooked pie crust ( I used Marie Callender's)

Mix the first 7 ingredients and pour into an uncooked pie crust. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Wow! That looks wonderful. My husband and I don't eat coconut though. Do you have any suggestions for substitutions for that ingredient? It sure looks divine though!

Howdy! I was searching for The Hungry Potter's Chicken Salad recipe (which is my all-time favorite) and came across your cute blog. I am a native Marshallite and have very fond memories of eating at The Hungry Potter - always finishing with their French Silk Pie. Mmmmmm... If you have either of those recipes up your sleeve, I would love to see them posted here. You have a new follower. Have a happy and prosperous New Year!
