Ingredients:  
1 pie shell for the bottom crust

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place pie shell in pie pan and set aside. Put water into small, heavy pot and bring to a boil on the stove.

Add grated apple and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until a puree forms (some texture in the puree is fine). Remove from heat.

Beat egg yolks slightly; add lemon juice and 3 oz. of sugar to the apple puree, then blend in the beaten egg yolks and stir well. Spoon into the pie shell and bake 20 minutes.

While baking, make a meringue by whisking the egg whites and gradually adding the remaining sugar, until stiff peaks begin forming.

Remove the pie from the oven after 20 minutes and spread meringue over the top evenly. Bake another 10 minutes to brown meringue. Serve this tasty Irish dessert recipe warm or chilled.

Personal Notes:
Our apple amber recipe is another Irish treat made from apples, and it has long been a favorite traditional Irish dessert.

Almost every Irish farm boasts at least a few apple trees. Before the pagan Irish were converted to Christianity, apples were thought to be under the protection of Brigit - a powerful Celtic goddess.

And according to the laws of the time, anyone who damaged someone else’s apple tree was required to compensate the tree’s owner by transferring ownership of several cows.

So, while we know there are multiple apple-based desserts in our menu, apples have a special place in Irish culture, and frankly, each of these desserts is too delicious to ignore!
