Marlborough Pie

Nancy Allen


This custard type pie is tart & sweet all at the same time. It's lemony flavor mixes with the apple sauce in your mouth. It's very different, But Yum!

How to Make Marlborough Pie


  1. Preheat your oven to 450. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, flour, and salt. Gradually add beaten egg yolks and applesauce, mixing well.
  2. Add zest, juice and melted butter, stirring until combined. Spread evenly into pie shell. Bake 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 300. Bake 20 minutes or until firm. Remove from oven.
  3. Cool 3 hours on a wire rack before serving. Tastes good with some whipped cream on top. I can't compare this pie to any I have had, but it sure is good!
