1 9" unbaked pie crust
2 c. grated apple
1/2 c. white granulated sugar
3 tbsp. butter
3 eggs, whites separated from yolks
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 c. powdered confectioners sugar

Spread the apples evenly in the bottom of the crust. Cream together the white granulated sugar and butter. Beat the egg yolks and blend with the lemon juice. Pour over the apples. Sprinkle with the cinnamon and nutmeg. Bake at 350 for 40 - 45 minutes. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gradually add the powdered sugar and vanilla, beating until the meringue is stiff. Spread over top of pie and return to oven. Reduce heat to 325 and bake for 5 - 10 minutes longer, until the meringue is lightly browned
