Mock Apple

Pie A mock apple pie made from crackers was apparently invented by pioneers on the move during the nineteenth century who were bereft of apples. In the 1930s, and for many years afterwards, Ritz Crackers promoted a recipe for mock apple pie using its product, along with sugar and various spices.

April Fool!," my young daughter cried with great glee. She had just baked a pie for her father, and she couldn't wait until he tasted it. It looked like apple pie. It tasted like apple pie, but there wasn't an apple in it. "It's made with Ritz crackers!," she announced triumphantly. He was appropriately impressed and declared she'd won the traditional tease.

It wasn't until some years later that I discovered that that recipe -- or one very much like it -- was invented around 1852 by a group of pioneer women for their children who missed the apple pie they'd had "back east." In Helen Evans Brown's West Coast Cookbook, she quotes Mrs. B. C. Whiting's How We Cook In Los Angeles (1894), "The deception was most complete and readily accepted. Apples at this early date were a dollar a pound, and we young people all craved a piece of Mother's apple pie to appease our homesick feelings." The recipe was referred to as "California Pioneer Apple Pie, 1852", and the crackers used at that time were "soda crackers" which were mixed with brown sugar, water and citrus acid and cinnamon.
