Crustless Apple Meringue Pie Recipe
- 5 tart apples - peeled, cored and sliced
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup white sugar
- 2 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
- ¼ cup raisins
- ¼ cup chopped walnuts
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 ¼ cups milk
- 3 egg whites
- 3 tablespoons white sugar
step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 9x13 inch baking pan.
step 2: In a medium bowl, combine apples with lemon juice; use enough juice to cover all apple pieces. In a separate bowl, mix together flour,3/4 cup sugar and cinnamon. Divide flour mixture into four parts.
step 3: Place 1/4 of apples onto the buttered baking pan, sprinkle some raisins and walnuts on top, then add 1/4 of the flour mixture. Repeat this step until all flour mixture is used. In a medium bowl, beat yolks with milk and pour evenly over apples. Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
step 4: To Make Meringue: In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add 3 tablespoons sugar, continuing to beat until whites form stiff peaks. Spread meringue over pie, covering completely. Put pie back in oven for a 6 or 7 minutes, or until meringue is slightly golden. Can be served warm or cold.
