Mock Apple Pie

This Ritz cracker confection does kind of look, smell and taste like apple pie. (This article┬átries 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.
