The idea of mock apple pie repulsed me but I had some leftover (stale) Ritz crackers from the Superbowl so I thought I would give this a shot. I was really surprised. It does taste like apple pie. I read previous reviews about this recipe being too watery so I added a half of a tablespoon of minute tapioca to it (which I put in my regular apple pies). I also increased the number of crackers used to 30. Those changes gave the filling the texture of canned apple pie filling. I also believe that no apple pie is complete without some nutmeg so I added 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. This recipe only got four stars because of the nutritional information. Regular apple pie is much more nutritious has one third the sodium (132mg vs 366) and about 200 calories less a slice. (255 vs 456 calories a slice) Not to mention the fact that apple pie has apples in it - which have a lot more health benefits than Ritz crackers. Needless to say although this recipe was really easy and it does taste like apple pie I won't make it again simply because of the nutritional information.
I laughed out loud after I took a bite of this - it's funny how good it tastes for what the ingredients are. The consistency (and flavor) of the filling is like watery applesauce. It's a fun thing to make - but I don't think I'll ever make it again. I mean WHY would you make MOCK apple pie? Who do you serve it to? I just wanted to see if this recipe worked and it did. If I were to make it again here's what I'd change: Add about 5 to 10 more crackers - this filling is really watery. And maybe add some cornstarch as well - 1 Tablespoon or more? Otherwise it's a fun little recipe but I'm sure your time in the kitchen is better spent on other things than making fake apple pie!
YUCK!! this pie turned out extremely watery and tasted TERRIBLE!! it was way to sweet and the boiled crackers with sugar was disgusting. It's also terribly unhealthy. It didn't fool my family. i will never make this again and adivse you not to. i prefer all-american APPLE pie over cracker pie any day.
This is a great recipe. My great grandfather made a mock apple pie and my grandmother made it for us when I was young. I think it's more historical than anything else. People made this before they had constant refrigeration and when apples weren't in season.
My first review ever on AllRecipes even though I've been on here for so long. My friend and I made this as part of our chemistry project ("The Chemistry of Baking") and everyone loved it. One of my friends actually said it was the best apple pie he ever had- real or fake. I'm not sure if I'd go THAT far, but was certainly tasty and fun to make.
I fooled a lot of people with this recipe. I made this pie because it was cheap and easy. I needed to make 12 pies and found it easy to double the recipe and make 2 at a time. I added extra cinnamon and I added nutmeg to the recipe! Everyone loved it and could not believe it did not have fruit of any kind in it! I would suggest a small sprinkle of pecans under the top layer to give it a little "crunch".
