I have been making mock apple pie for many years at Thanksgiving time. This has to be the easiest recipe that I have tried. Thank you Brenda for adding this recipe to


I've had this recipe sitting in my recipe box for years now, scared of making it, and not sure about what kind of crackers to use! I finally bough the original ritz crackers, and said what the heck, I'll just make it and see! I was afraid it was going to be too salty or something. Let me tell you, it came out awesome!! I cannot believe how much it tastes like apple pie, but better! My mom tasted it not knowing it didn't have apples, and said," this is a great pie, especially cuz the apples have caramelized, and THAT's how I like them to taste!" The topping was also really good, crispy and chewy at the same time. It was perfect warm or even after it cooled down completely. If I cut down on the sugar next time however, I think it would be even more delicious! Great recipe if you need to make really good apple pie and you don't have apples, but should't be made too often, just because it is not as healthy!


I had a bunch of crackers left over and I thought they would go to waste. This was the perfect answer. Loved it. Thought it tasted like apple pie. Tasted a bit and gave the two pies away as a Valentine's Gift. Added a bit of lemon juice and added more cinnamon during the boiling process. We didn't have enough Ritz crackers for the topping so we used cheddar and peanut butter sandwich crackers. This made it even better! It gave it a saltier tangier kick that only that sandwich cracker can do. It reminded me of a salt water taffy type candy. Yummy. I would definitely make it again.
