Apple Meringue Pie

Apple Meringue Pie
1 pie shell 9" unbaked
2 c apple, grated
1/2 c sugar
3 T butter
1 tsp lemon juice
3 eggs, separated
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 c powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Spread grated apple evenly across bottom of pie shell.  In a separate bowl, cream sugar and butter.  Blend in lemon juice and 3 beaten egg yolks.  Pour over apple.  Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg.  Bake at 350 for 40 to 45 minutes.  Beat egg whites until peaks are formed.  Gradually add powdered sugar and vanilla, beating until meringue is stiff.  Spread over top of pie.  Return to oven.  Reduce heat to 325.  Bake 5 to 10 minutes longer, until meringue is lightly brown.  Enjoy!

This pie was so yummy.  But if your looking for an traditional apple pie, this is not it.  The apple mixture is more like a custard.  It really was a surprising delight.  We all loved it.  It was especially good with a little scoop of vanilla ice cream while the pie was still warm.
