Recipes : Cracker Pudding

This is another of my grandfather's recipe.   When I was going through Gram's cookbooks, I found a few that were written out in Grampy's writing, on bits of cardboard, backs of envelopes... this is one of them.

Cracker Pudding

2/3 cup soda cracker crumbs
1 cup shredded coconut (optional)
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
4 cups milk, scalded
1/4 cup melted shortening
2 eggs, separated
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup icing sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice

Mix crumbs, sugar, salt and milk.  Stir in melted shortening and beaten egg yolks.  Add vanilla.  Pour into greased baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for one hour.  Remove from oven.  Cover with meringue made from egg whites, icing sugar and lemon juice.  Return to oven and bake until browned.
