Students in chemistry class at the high school recently made mock apple pies. Guided by teacher Patricia Iadarola, the students used chemistry – and the secret ingredients of Ritz crackers and cream of tartar – to make quick apple pies without any apples. 

“Surprisingly, the apples were not missed and the pie tasted delicious,” Iadarola said.
