Apple Meringue Pie

The family and I were invited out for Shabbos lunch this week and I offered to bring dessert just as I was perusing and "spotted" a recipe for Apple Meringue Pie.  What a perfect opportunity to try my hand at meringue!

And why didn't I try sooner?

It's so incredibly easy!

This recipe is delicious and PERFECT JUST AS IT IS! (adapted from Dine & Dash)

Note the stiff peak. :)

Apple Meringue Pie

  • ~4 apples, 3 diced and 1 sliced thin
  • 1/2 C water
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • juice of 1 lemon (or just eyeball some lemon juice.  Don't gotta be too scientific)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 4 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 graham cracker pie crust
  1. Bring water and 1/2 C sugar to a boil in a small pan over medium-high heat.  Add in diced apples, lemon juice, and cinnamon.  Let cook for about 10 minutes.
  2. Beat egg whites and 4 Tbsp sugar on high with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.  Add in vanilla and beat until vanilla is incorporated.
  3. line the bottom of the pie crust with the sliced apple, top with the diced apple filling, then spread meringue on top.
  4. Bake at 325 degrees F for about 18 mins.
  5. Cool before serving.
