Notice anything strange about the apple pie pictured here? If you noticed there were no apples at all, you are right. That because the picture comes from The Awl's recipe for an appleless apple pie that uses chemicals to trick your tastebuds. The most important ingredient? Cream of Tartar.
While you won't win any cooking contests with this recipe, you'll certainly be able to impress your chemist friends at your next dinner party.Link
