Butterscotch Apple Meringue Tart

About the bake

We've called this an Apple Meringue Tart but really it’s an Apple Meringue Pie with butterscotch. The difference is that we've not included a pastry case for this recipe and you can just use an ovenproof dish to serve the apples and the meringue in.
