Mock Apple Pie

This Ritz cracker confection does kind of look, smell and taste like apple pie. (This article tries to get to the bottom of the history and mystery of the supposedly depression-era specialty — although I don’t really get why it would be a product of economy-minded folks. As a friend pointed out, “Don’t apples grow on trees?” Ritz crackers do not. And neither does cream of tartar, which is a bit pricey if you ask me.) Anyway, turning crackers into an apple-like substance is a neat magic trick, but I don’t really like it any better than the real thing.
