2 egg whites
1/2 c. sugar
1/8 tsp. cream of tartar
1 c. nut meats

Beat the egg whites until they are stiff. While doing this, gradually add the remaining ingredients. Then spread the "batter" into a well-greased 9" pie plate and shape it into a crust as best you can.

Bake the crust at 275 degrees for one hour, then cool it.

1 pkg. (3/4 c.) chocolate chips
3 tblsp. hot water
1/2 pint heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla

Melt the chocolate chips with the hot water in the top of a double boiler. (You'd have to be a pretty great fool to melt it in the bottom.)

While the chocolate mixture cools, whip the cream.

Finally, add the vanilla to the chocolate, then fold in the cream. Fill the pie shell and chill the pie.
