Apple Tarts

Ingredients

  • 10 large, tart apples
  • yolks of 6 eggs, or 3 whole ones
  • juice and grated outside rind of 2 lemons
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 1/2 cups of sugar (or more, if not sufficiently sweet)
  • puff paste

Instructions

Pare, quarter, core and boil in half a cupful of water, until quite soft, the apples; beat until very smooth and add the yolks, the juice and grated rind of the lemons, butter; sugar; beat all thoroughly, line patty-pans with a puff paste and fill; bake five minutes in a hot oven.

Meringue

If desired very nice, cover them when removed from the oven with the meringue made of the whites of three eggs remaining, mixed with three tablespoonfuls of sugar; return to the oven and delicately brown.
