  • Apple Meringue Pie-Bev Laumann

    serves 8
    1-1/3 cups Graham Crackers(IC friendly)
    1/4 cup sugar
    7 Tbsp. stick margarine, melted
    1/8 tsp. ground allspice

    3/4 cup sugar
    3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
    1 Tbsp. light brown sugar
    1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg(if can tolerate)
    1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon(if can tolerate)
    6-1/2 cups Gala apples, peeled, cored and sliced about 1/4-inch thick

    Meringue Topping
    3 egg whites (from large eggs)
    1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
    1/8 tsp. cream of tartar (optional)
    5 Tbsp. sugar

    Roll graham crackers between sheets of wax paper or use a food processor to grind into crumbs. Combine the crumbs, sugar, margarine and allspice. Press firmly into a 9-inch pie plate.

    For filling, mix flour and sugar thoroughly in a large saucepan. Stir in the brown sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Add the sliced apples, stirring to coat evenly. Place saucepan over low to medium heat and cover. Cook, stirring intermittently until apples are soft and juice is thickened, about 20 to 25 minutes. Pour filling into crust and spread evenly.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a clean bowl, beat egg whites with vanilla and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in the sugar until stiff and glossy peaks form and the sugar crystals are all dissolved. Heap meringue into center of pie and spread to the edges of crust, sealing to the crust. Bake in oven at 350 degrees F. until the meringue is golden, about 11 to 14 minutes. Remove and allow to cool before serving.

    (By the way, if the Gala apples still irritate your bladder, this pie is also delicious made with firm red Bartlett pears!)
