Instructions: BTW, I got the appetizer recipe from my mom and the angel pie from my grandmother - where they got them, I have no idea.
Beat egg whites, salt, and cream of tartar until soft peaks are formed. Add sugar gradually and continue beating until mixture is stiff. Fold in nuts and 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Turn into lightly greased 8" pie pan and make nest-like shell, building up 1/2" above edge of pan. Bake at 300 for 50-55 minutes.
Place chocolate and water in saucepan over low heat. Stir until chocolate is melted. Cool until thickened. Add 1 tsp. vanilla. Whip cream. Fold chocolate mixture into cream. Spoon into cooled shell. Chill 2 hours.
