DIRECTIONS

  • Put the water and lemon juice in a large saucepan.
  • Halve, core and peel the apples and drop them in the lemon water to prevent discoloring.
  • Add another 1/2 cup of water, if necessary, to cover the apples.
  • Cover the pan and bring to a boil quickly.
  • Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 3-5 minutes, until apples are just barely tender.
  • Remove apples from the pan and drain them.
  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Butter a 10-inch pie plate.
  • Separate the eggs.
  • Put the egg whites in a mixing bowl with a pinch of salt and whip them until stiff peaks form.
  • In another bowl, cream the butter and sugar.
  • Stir in the egg yolks and almonds.
  • Mix a spoonful of whipped egg whites into the creamed mixture then gently fold in the rest of the egg whites.
  • Place the apple halves, flat side down in the buttered pie plate.
  • Pour the almond topping mixture over the apples and gently smooth the batter between the apples. The tops of the apples will peek through.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown.
  • Serve at room temperature.
