Ritz Crackers Bar

I have heard tales about Ritz crackers becoming other things – apple pies and candy and cookies, among them, but I never actively tried to make any of them. It sounds so counter intuitive: a salty cracker tasting like an apple pie, for instance. Should you be interested in trying one of these legendary treats, look no further than the Ritz Crackers Bar. It is sweetened with sugar and vanilla, held together with egg whites and nuts, and reminds me a bit of Schaum torte (another item I haven’t had a chance to try yet).
