Mock Apple Pie / Ritz Cracker Pie - Margaret Ullrich

I know...
the crackers were on sale - even buy one, get one free - and the TV commercials had folks digging their crackers into the dips like they were buckets of ice cream.

All your friends ate the raw veggies.
Now you're stuck with Ritz crackers.
Nobody likes them.

Still, can't just throw them away, what with people starving somewhere.
Can't send the crackers to them, either.

Make a fake apple pie.
Would I lie to you?
