Mock Apple Pie


A vintage pie recipe made with saltine crackers and apple pie spice seasonings.


  • pastry for 2-crust 9-inch pie
  • 1 sleeve saltine crackers
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • cinnamon


Line a 9-inch pie plate with rolled-out pastry. Break saltines coarsely into the pie shell. Combine water, sugar, and cream of tartar in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add lemon juice and peel; cool. Pour the syrup over crackers. Dot with butter and sprinkle generously with cinnamon. Cover with top crust and flute edge. Cut slits into top to allow steam to escape. Bake in a 425° oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and crisp. Serve warm, with ice cream, if desired.
