Apple meringue pie

    55 min

    Had a few egg whites in the fridge I needed to use up and one cooking apple so I came up with this recipe! It's very light and just good for using up bits!

    I didn't bake this blind when I tried it first and found the pastry a bit soggy, so blind baking is recommended.
