Apple Pie


  • 3 cooking apples
  • 1 egg yolk*
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. water or apple juice
  • small pinch of ground cinnamon

*For babies age 6 months to 10 months, omit egg and add infant cereal by 1 tablespoon, until you get the desired consistency.


Peel, core, and dice the apple into small pieces. Add to the lemon juice and water, cook over medium heat in a small saucepan for 20 minutes or until soft.

Mash or puree to desired consistency. Beat in the egg yolk and sugar until smooth.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes or until set. Cool before serving.

This is interesting, for adults I guess it's because it's more an applesauce pie than the apple pie I'm used to, but I think I'll try it with a gingersnap crust and I guess I'll see what quantity it makes. Maybe whipped cream with cinnamon or just leave it as ginger crust with apples//maybe some crystallized ginger. I never thought of putting egg yolk in applesauce to firm it up. Thanks.
