I read this recipe several times before I was able to see how the end product would turn out. First, it made no sense but after careful examination, I realized the egg and milk would create a custard in the final product. Next, I got confused on where the top crust was supposed to go? Not that I don’t know where a top crust goes but what I was reading (wrongly) I might add, made no sense at all. So now that I got that figured out and yes, the crust goes on the top. The custard mixture goes directly on the apples. I have to tell you I’m am not a big fan of adding lemon to my apple pies because, in my opinion, it distorts the delicious apple pie flavor. But I may consider doing what they said in this recipe to place the apples into a lemon water bath. However, my only concern is that it may waterlog the apples but then again since the next step is the custard maybe it will actually be O.K. So I think this recipe is ‘OnlineGranny Sharon’ approved!
Baked apple custard dessert, otherwise called Amish apple fish cake, is going to be served this year for every special occasion!
