This recipe was submitted by Mary Jones of Lixm. Holywell and is one that was passed down by her mother.

Mary said: "This is another easy, economical recipe especially as we had an orchard. I use the egg yolks in the sponge (two yolks equals one egg) which I make myself and coat with homemade jam. My family love apple pie and lemon meringue pie and this is just that bit different."
