1. Roll out half the pastry and line a 9-inch pie plate. Place cracker crumbs in prepared crust; set aside.
2. Heat water, sugar and cream of tartar to a boil in saucepan over high heat; simmer for 15 minutes. Add lemon juice and peel; cool.
3. Pour syrup over cracker crumbs. Dot with margarine or butter; sprinkle with cinnamon.
4. Roll out remaining pastry; place over pie. Trim, seal and flute edges. Slit top crust to allow steam to escape.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I found this recipe on the back of a box of RITZ Crackers. Really. Keep in mind, while RITZ crackers may be better for you nutritionally, a pound of apples are about 1/3 the cost of a box of RITZ.

Serving suggestion:
Pass on this recipe and try Ruth's German Apple Cake.
