This is a very light dessert recipe, which was passed on to me by my late mother-in-law. Perfect after a big roast dinner!

My Mum makes a pudding she has always called 'Apple Snow'. It's like Lemon Meringue: pastry case, stewed apple and a meringue topping (the 'snow'). :)

Easy and delicious to eat, could have been written differently....

Sorry but this recipe was not well written. Luckily there is another recipe on the same website so I had to read that one to get a better understanding. But having looked into it further it would seem that the normal recipe is with cream, not custard. I did stick with this version however but it really didn't work for me.
