Rachel Hunt’s Mock Apple Pie Recipe

Pastry for two-crust 9-inch pie
36 Ritz Crackers, coarsely broken (about 1 3/4 cups crumbs)
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Grated rind of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons margarine
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Heat oven to 425°F.

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

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