Roll out half the pastry and line a 9 inch pie plate. Place crackers in
prepared crust. In saucepan, over high heat, heat water, sugar, and cream
of tartar to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Add lemon juice and rind;
cool. Pour syrup over crackers. Dot with margarine; sprinkle with cinnamon.
Roll out remaining pastry; place over pie. Trim, seal and flute edges. Slit
top crust to allow steam to escape. Bake at 425 F for 30-35 minutes or
until crust is crisp and golden. Cool completely.

The History of RITZ Mock Apple Pie: Food historians believe that the
concept of mock apple pie was developed by the pioneers during the
nineteenth century. Constant travel did not allow for proper food storage
conditions, and apples were not always available. With a little
improvisation, these pioneers created an apple pie-like dessert out of
crackers, sugar, and spice. It wasn?t until the Depression years that we
saw the emergence of this unique recipe on RITZ Cracker boxes. At the time
of RITZ Mock Apple Pie?s development, apples were once again scarce and
very expensive. Thanks to NABISCO, families across the United States could
once again enjoy and afford the luxury of Apple Pie.
