Apparently mock apple pies have been made since the 1850s, when pioneers missed the apple pie Mom used to make when they lived back east. They substituted one made of soda crackers and spices. (Soda crackers weren't cheap, but apples cost the equivilant of $100 per pound in today's money, in Los Angeles in the 1850s.)One of the most popular and famous involves Ritz crackers instead of the apples. If you really want it, Google "Ritz Mock Apple Pie" My question is, Why? Why not use apples, which are tastier and certainly healthier than an all-starch soda cracker pie?
