Pg. 8, col. 5:
Dear Miss Leonard--I once tasted a pie which was called apple pie, but was  
quite different from the ones we usually call by that name. It was a one-crust  
pie, filled with a rich,, creamy, pulpy sort of mixture, in which I could 
taste  apple and fresh lemon, lemon rind, I should say. If you have a recipe for  
anything like this I should much appreciate it if you would publish it.--Mrs. 
L.  L. W.
I fancy that you mean what is sometimes called queen apple pie and  sometimes 
lemon-apple pie. This is, indeed, very rich and makes an unusually  
acceptable dessert. It is a mixture of cream, eggs, grated apple and lemon. Here  is 
one recipe: Pare and grate one large apple. Take one lemon and save the  grated 
yellow part. Cut it in halves and squeeze the juice of one-half over the  
grated apple pulp. Now, add the rind. Beat to a cream two level tablespoonfuls  of 
butter, then beat in successively half a cup of water, the yolks of two eggs, 
 half a cup of sweet cream and the prepared apple pulp. Turn into a small 
baking  plate lined with a good pastry and bake until the filling is firm. Frost 
with a  heavy meringue made from the whites of the two eggs.
