A word from Mary Ann:
I love this recipe and make it every now and then to fool people and when I have not had this pie in a while, I make it just to remind myself that it really DOES taste like Apple Pie.
Try it... this is a tried and true recipe!
|Pastry for 2-crust 9-inch pie |
|36 RITZ Crackers, coarsely broken (about 1-3/4 cups crumbs) |
|2 cups sugar |
|2 tsp. cream of tartar |
|Grated peel of 1 lemon |
|2 Tbsp. lemon juice |
|2 Tbsp. butter or margarine |
|1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon |
|PREHEAT oven to 425°F. Roll out half of the pastry and place in 9-inch pie plate. Place cracker crumbs in crust; set aside. |
|MIX sugar and cream of tartar in medium saucepan. Gradually stir in 1-3/4 cups water until well blended. Bring to boil on high heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer 15 minutes. Add lemon peel and juice; cool. Pour syrup over cracker crumbs. Dot with butter; sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll out remaining pastry; place over pie. Trim; seal and flute edges. Slit top crust to allow steam to escape. |
|BAKE 30 to 35 minutes or until crust is crisp and golden. Cool completely. |
