Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Fool your guests with this mock apple pie that can be made with saltines. Break them into pieces, pile them into a waiting crust and top with a lemon-infused syrup that magically makes the crackers taste like apples.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  • Arrange crackers in pastry-lined pie pan and set aside.
  • In medium saucepan, combine water, sugar, and cream of tartar. Stir well and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in vinegar.
  • Cool sugar mixture, then pour over crackers. Dot crackers with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon. Cover with second pastry shell. Seal edges and cut steam vents in top.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cool and serve with ice cream or whipped cream if desired.

  • Baking pie is a rather straightforward technique, but a few tips can only help to make your pies come out looking and tasting perfect!
