Apple & Cream Meringues Recipe

The apple pie filling gives this meringue a feeling of warmth and is an excellent dessert to serve on Thanksgiving or even Christmas! Whenever I make them, people always ask for seconds and for the recipe!—Rhonda Braun, Land O Lakes, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 50 min. + standing YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 can (21 ounces) apple pie filling
  • Apple pie spice

Directions

  • 1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Using a pencil, draw eight 3-in. circles on a sheet of parchment paper. Place paper, pencil mark down, on a baking sheet; set aside.
  • 2. Add vanilla and vinegar to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Beat in cornstarch. Gradually beat in brown sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved.
  • 3. Cut a small hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag; insert a #18 star tip. Fill bag with meringue; pipe meringue in a spiral fashion to fill in circles on prepared pan. Pipe twice around the base of each shell in a spiral fashion to make the sides.
  • 4. Bake at 275° for 50-60 minutes or until set and dry. Turn oven off; leave meringues in oven for 1 hour.
  • 5. In a large bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Spoon into meringues. Top with pie filling; sprinkle with pie spice. Yield: 8 servings.
