1/2 cup margarine (softened)

1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs (separated)
1/2 cup nut meats cut fine (pecans)
1 cup brown sugar

Lightly grease 13X9 1/2 inch pan.

Mix all dry ingredients with margarine, vanilla and egg yolks.
Mixture will be dry and crumbly. Spread and press into prepared pan.

Beat 2 egg whites with 1 cup of brown sugar to get a fluffy meringue mixture. Pour egg white mixture over mix in pan and bake for 30 minutes in a 350 F oven (325 F if using a glass pan).
