Description

I remember my mother baking this when I was young. She kept my dad guessing for awhile on this one. A good stand-in for the real thing. May use lemon juice instead of cider vinegar.

Ingredients
  • 2 (9 inch) pie shell
  • 36 buttery round crackers
  • 1 ¾ cups water
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Directions
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. 2. Arrange crackers in pastry-lined pie pan and set aside.
  3. 3. In medium saucepan, combine water, sugar, and cream of tartar. Stir well and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in vinegar.
  4. 4. Cool sugar mixture, then pour over crackers. Dot crackers with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon. Cover with second pastry shell. Seal edges and cut steam vents in top.
  5. 5. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cool and serve with ice cream or whipped cream if desired.
