    Sandaidh's Note:

    This recipe is one that my mother, grandmother and great grandmother made. I thought it had been lost when my mother died. Imagine my surprise when I found it written on the inside of her favorite cookbook, which I inherited. I had no idea whether or not it would taste as good as my childhood memories when I made it. It does. One can use either pre-made unbaked pie shells and/or crusts, or homemade. I used a pre-made, unbaked shell and then cut up a premade (boxed) unbaked crust for the lattice top. The extra pie crust I sprinkled with sugar and baked along with the pie. I remember the "pie crust cookies" from my childhood too. This pie has the taste and texture of a real apple pie, and it's a lot of fun to see the expressions when it's revealed that the 'secret ingredient' is Ritz crackers. It's a quick and easy recipe that tastes good.

      Here's one for ALL pie lovers. My neighbors and I had the privilege of trying this pie made by the chef herself and as we set at the table talking about how good it was, we asked what type of apples she used in it. She proceeded to tell us the recipe. Five jaws hit the floor. Not ONE apple! The texture and the taste is incredible, and the crust was Awesome. I highly recommend this recipe. Thanks for sharing it here.
