Mock Apple Pie

on July 22, 2010

I am sure many of you may remember years ago the recipe on the side of the Ritz Cracker box. It was for Mock Apple Pie. No apples needed! I remember making it a few times and still couldn’t figure out how it tasted like apple pie without any apples in it! I believe it has something to do with the crackers but I do not know how it’s done! I just came across the recipe and thought I’d share it with everyone. It’s very easy and again, no apples needed!

INGREDIENTS:

Pastry for two crust 9-inch pie

36 RITZ crackers

2 cups water

2 cups sugar

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

2 tablespoons lemon juice

Grated rind of one lemon

Butter or margarine

Cinnamon


DIRECTIONS:

1. Roll out bottom crust of pastry and fit into a 9″ pie plate.

2. Break the RITZ crackers coarsely into the pastry-lined plate.

3. In a large saucepan combine the water, sugar and cream of tartar. Boil gently for 15 minutes. Stirring occasionally. Add lemon juice and rind. Cool.

4. Pour syrup over crackers and dot generously with butter or margarine and sprinkle with cinnamon. Cover with top crust. Trim and flute edges together. Cut slits in top crust to let steam escape.

5. Bake in 425º oven for 30-35 minutes, until crust is crisp and golden. Serve warm. Top with whipped cream if you want! (I know in my house we will!)

Makes 6-8 slices
