Welcome to the Quilting Board!
You are too funny, mimio. The reason why I never made the mock apple pie again is because I do make a great apple pie. I have won 2 blue ribbons for my apple pies. Sorry, but I just had to brag.
And yes, Sparkys-Mom, Apples are better than Ritz crackers.

What fun to read this thread! I've not tried the Mock Apple Pie, but probably would, in a pinch. My lovely daughter-in-law has made Green Tomato Pie with overabundant fruit that had no chance of ripening before a frost. My son said it tasted darned good!
When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!
This is my husbands favourite dish, since childhood!
