Ritz Mock Apple Pie

"Let your family members or guests eat some of this before asking if they know what it contains!!! The title tells it all. It is surprisingly good...and a fun thing to do, especially with children. Serve warm with ice cream or a cheese wedge."

    To give it more of an apple flavor, try using unsweetened apple juice in place of the water. You can use regular apple juice, but ii find that makes it a bit too sweet.

    My Mom use to always talk about how Grandma made a mock apple pie using Ritz crackers during the depression. I've always wanted to try one, and now that I've found a recipe I will! Thank You!
