Mock Mince Pie
To make this you will need:
Large saucepan and spoon
Nine-inch pie dish
1-1/2 cups seedless raisins
4 Granny Smith apples peeled, cored, and sliced
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1/3 cup orange juice
1/2 cup apple cider (apple juice also works but it's sweeter)
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
2 soda crackers, finely crushed
Pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
Preheat oven to 425 F (220 C).
Stir the raisins, apples, grated orange peel, orange juice, and apple cider together in a pan.
Simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until apples are very soft, about 20 minutes.
Stir in the sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and soda crackers until well blended.
Refrigerate until ready to use, or pour apple mixture into the prepared pie crust. Top with the second crust.
Pinch and crimp edges to seal the crusts. Pierce the top crust in several places with a fork.
Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 350 F (175 C), and bake until top is golden brown, about 30 minutes.
Cool before serving.
