Nutritional Facts

1 piece equals 499 calories, 24 g fat (10 g saturated fat), 71 mg cholesterol, 211 mg sodium, 66 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 6 g protein.

Directions

  1. Combine the cracker crumbs, pecans, sugar and butter; press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. pie plate. Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. Cool completely on a wire rack. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  2. Spread 2 cups ice cream into the crust. Freeze for 30 minutes. In a small bowl, combine lemon curd and lemon juice. Spread over ice cream and freeze until firm, about 1 hour. Top with remaining ice cream. Freeze for 2 hours or until set.
  3. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar. With a hand mixer, beat on low speed for 1 minute. Continue beating over low heat until mixture reaches 160°, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl; beat until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved.
  4. Immediately spread meringue over ice cream, sealing to edges of pie. Heat with a kitchen torch or broil 8 in. from the heat for 3-5 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned. Freeze for at least 1 hour before serving. Yield: 8 servings.
