My mother made this pie at Thanksgiving, and it's a great variation on apples and raisins with a hint of orange and cinnamon and cloves. She called it 'mock' because there is no meat involved. The filling mixture will keep for several days. Before using the filling, it's optional to stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons of brandy.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Stir the raisins, apples, orange zest, orange juice, and apple cider together in a pan. Simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until apples are very soft, about 20 minutes. Stir in the sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and soda crackers until well blended. Refrigerate until ready to use, or pour apple mixture into the prepared pie crust. Top with the second crust. Pinch and crimp edges to seal the crusts. Pierce the top crust in several places with a fork.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake until top is golden brown, about 30 minutes more. Cool before serving.

This was amazing! My English husband said it was even better than his Mum's! I substituted lemon zest for the orange zest and added some walnuts for a bit more texture and 2 tablespoons of dark rum - I didn't have brandy. Kudos! It was D-lish!

I am surprised to see that so few people have reviewed or tried this recipe. I love mincemeat pie and this recipe is far superior to anything you could buy in a store or by using jarred mincemeat. I made exactly as written and it came out perfect. The smell of the apples and cinnamon and cloves cooking is out of this world. The orange juice and apple cider add a lot to the pie. Made it at Christmas and again in Feb. Wonderful recipe- 5 stars Peggy Ann

Truly an awesome pie.It is moist and the apples are in equal dominance with the raisens in flavor with a hint of orange and good old fashioned spices!!
