I tried out Molly Wizenberg’s recipe for Vanilla Applesauce with a Crunchy Meringue Cap. Molly gave me permission to publish her recipe in the September issue of Oklahoma Living.
I had never worked with meringue before and I’m not a fan of fluffy meringue pies; however, this concept of crunchy meringue intrigued me.
The cap of meringue sealed in the applesauce, so I had to tap, tap, tap to break through. It sort of felt like ice fishing—not that I have ever ice fished.
The recipe worked beautifully and I can’t wait to apply this crunchy meringue cap to other desserts, namely a semi-sweet dark chocolate pudding.
Of course, if you want to try the recipe with applesauce, Oklahoma apples are in season right now.
