Apple Fluff Pie - 27th Vintage Recipe Thursday

Vintage Recipe Thursday is meant to preserve your own original vintage family recipes, or out-of-print, copyright-free recipes from old cookbooks, magazines, newspapers. You're invited! Get the details by clicking to the Vintage Recipe Thursday Homepage. I post recipes from the Searchlight Recipe Book, first published in 1931. My 16th printing is from 1943. What will you post?


I was just reading on several blogs about people looking for something to do with apple sauce other than just plain eating the sauce. Well, apple sauce can be added to cakes of course. Your next cake will be moist and tasty. You can also add a dollop inside your next batch of apple turnovers. You can spread a nice layer over the bottom crust of your next apple pie, too.

Or you can try out this Apple Fluff Pie Recipe.

Apple Fluff Pie Recipe
2 cups well-sweetened apple sauce
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon flour
2 eggs
Few grains of salt

Combine apple sauce, lemon juice, salt, flour, and well-beaten egg yolks. Cook over hot water until thick and smooth. Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites. Pour into pastry-lined pie pan. Bake in hot oven (425 F.) until crust is brown and filling is firm.


I noticed with a couple of other blogs I was visiting last week that MckLinky was having problems, and I also received one comment that it was not showing on this blog either. Brent, the software writer for MckLinky has been pretty reliable, so I hope all is fixed by now, but if you don't see MckLinky, or if it does not work for you, please add your link to the comments. We'll do it the "good old way!" :-) That will work too for now.

Thank you for participating in Vintage Recipe Thursday, and I look forward to visiting your blogs and reading your vintage recipe finds.

It helps everyone if you leave a link to your participating recipe in McKlinky, rather than to your main blog, and let us know what your recipe is.
Thank you for participating!
