This is pie is made just like an apple pie, with the exception of the apple pie. A sweet syrup is made, and the crackers are seasoned just like you would an apple pie.


Water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Cream of tartar 2 Teaspoon
Unbaked pie shells/1 package of refrigerated pie crust dough 2
Ritz crackers 40
Lemon zest 1 Teaspoon
Lemon juice 2 Tablespoon
Cinnamon 1 Teaspoon
Nutmeg 1/4 Teaspoon
Butter 2 Tablespoon , cut in small


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium sized sauce pan combine water, sugar, and cream of tartar, bring to a boil. Once the syrup begins to boil add the lemon juice and lemon zest. Stir lemon juice and zest into syrup in the mixture, reduce heat to low, and simmer for approximately 15 minutes, after 15 minutes allow syrup to cool.

Place one pie crust in a pie pan, and then break crackers into the pie pie shell. Pour syrup over the crackers. Sprinkle cinnamon over crackers, and sprinkle over nutmeg over the crackers. Top with pie shell with remaining pie crust. Pinch together crusts and then trim off excess pie shell. Make a couple of slits in the top of the pie so the steam can escape while cooking. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the pie crust is golden brown.
