Crustless Apple Pie/lemon Topping
Pies & Pastries
apple pie spice
-- (or 1 t cinnamon)
Place apples in a food processor, and blend for about 5 seconds, or
until apples are coarsely chopped. Add the remaining ingredients and
blend until apples are finely chopped, but not pureed. Place apple
mixture in a buttered 9-inch pie plate and bake in a 350 degree oven for
35 minutes or until pie is almost set. Spread top with Lemon Meringue
Topping, return to oven and continue baking for about 20 minutes or
until top is golden brown. Allow to cool and cut into wedges to serve.
Serves 8. Note: The only thing to watch is that the apples dont get
pureed in blending. If you blend too long, apples will turn into a soupy
sauce and pie will not bake properly. LEMON MERINGUE TOPPING: 2 egg
whites, 1/4 c sugar, 1 T grated lemon peel. Beat egg whites until foamy.
Gradually add sugar and beat until meringue is stiff. (This is not a
light meringue, but a denser version.) Beat in the lemon peel.
