Does anybody have the apple pie recipe that used to come on Ritz cracker boxes?? My mother wants to make it but can't find the recipe anywhere. I think she said its called mock apple pie? Its made with the crackers and doesn't actually have apples in it but is supposed to taste like apple pie. If anybody could help me out it would be appreciated. Thank you. :)
What you talkin 'bout Willis? That sounds good lol
