I did not use a pie plate I made several smaller versions in 5x5 pans so I could freeze them. Worked out great. This really does taste good maybe a tad runny so maybe a few more crackers needed. Nice warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Read More

I've read recipes for Mock Apple Pie for years and finally decided I wanted to try it. If you don't tell anyone they will think it's apple pie but when I make real apple pie there is texture. There are discernable apple pieces. This comes out more like thick applesauce. I do appreciate being able to try the recipe once. Read More
