pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
1 3/4 cups
crushed buttery round crackers
cream of tartar
A recipe similar to this appeared in the Kraft "Food and Family" magazine where I had originally tried it. This is a REALLY good recipe especially if you like lemon. One error I find in this recipe though is it requires a double crust, not single crust pie shell.Takes about 36 crackers,rind of 1 whole lemon and juice of 1 1/2 lemon. This may help when making your grocery list. Also, it is not necessary to cool pie completely. We ate it warm and it did not fall apart when cutting and tasted great!
Great pie! Hubby and I have hit some hard times and this pie sure is cheaper than an apple pie. Great taste! He sure was fooled! I sprinkled cinnamon between layers of crakers. Sprinkled some coarse sugar on the top crust before baking.
If you didn't know it was made from crackers instead of apples; you wouldn't know the difference.
