Tastes just like strudel, but can be made in a jiffy!
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 5 tart apples - peeled, cored and sliced
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 2 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- 3 egg whites
- 3 tablespoons white sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 9x13 inch baking pan.
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.
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.
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.
