Expert Tips

Meringue can be made without cream of tartar; the egg whites and sugar alone can also make delicious meringue. But the cream of tartar makes meringue look shinier, so it’s up to you if you wish to add this ingredient or not.

I have a special place in my heart for apple pie. Not the traditional American-style pie, but my mom’s version of this classic. She would often dress up her pies with meringue, so I grew up knowing how to make meringue in all its forms and how to use it to make pies, cookies and cakes. This pie can start a tradition at your home; it’s a great summer pie that your whole family and friends will enjoy.

Directions

  • 1 In a large bowl, toss the finely sliced apples with the lemon juice. Let it rest while you prepare the rest of the filling.
  • 2 In a smaller bowl, whisk in the egg yolks, sugar, milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, flour and lemon zest until it forms a nice and smooth batter. Pour over the sliced apples until well covered. Set aside.
  • 3 Line a 9-inch plate with pastry in a glass pie dish, pour the filling in, distribute evenly and add a few dots of butter on top.
  • 4 Bake at 400ºF for 20 minutes covered with a foil. Remove the foil and bring the oven down to 350ºF, bake for another 25 minutes. Remove and let cool off a bit.
  • 5 Meanwhile, beat the egg whites and the cream of tartar in medium speed until foamy. Add the sugar, one tablespoon at a time, beating now at a higher speed. Beat the meringue until peaks form and it holds.
  • 6 Distribute meringue on top of the pie and bake again at 350ºF for 15 minutes or until the meringue is golden brown.
  • 7 Let it cool and store in the fridge.
