Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Place the crushed matzos in a medium bowl then add enough water to cover. Let stand for 2 minutes then drain off excess water. Do not squeeze.
To the bowl of matzo, add eggs, 1/4 cup sugar, salt, lemon juice and apple sauce. Stir to combine. Mix in the apples and dried cranberries. Spread the mixture evenly into a 2.5 litre baking dish. Mix together the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the top.
Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven or until the top is golden and the apples are soft.
