Depression-Era Mock Apple Pie Recipe
“Apple pie is a classic, American staple, but would were people supposed to do during the Depression when they couldn’t afford apples?? Some bright soul decided to try out using a totally out-of-left-field ingredient – do you know what it is? – to create the same layers you would find in an apple pie, then coating those layers with a lemon cinnamon syrup to impart all the traditional flavors of an apple pie. Are you curious about that secret ingredient?? It’s ritz crackers!”
I would never even have thought of Ritz crackers. How awesome is that? There is sure a lot that we can learn from our ancestors, and cooking on the cheap is one of them. You can find the full recipe for this delicious apple pie by clicking on the link below.
