2 cups water
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Grated rind of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons margarine

Heat oven to 425°F.

Roll out half of pastry and line 9-inch pie plate. Place crackers in prepared crust.

In saucepan, over high heat, bring water, sugar and cream of tartar to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Pour over crackers in pie plate. Sprinkle with lemon juice and rind; cool. Dot with margarine and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Roll out remaining pastry; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Slit top crust to allow steam to escape.
