Take one cupful of well cooked dried, fresh or canned apples, mash and rub through colander, add half cup granulated sugar, more or less, amount depending on the sourness of the apples. Now mix the yolks of two eggs, three tablespoonful sugar, one heaping tablespoonful of cornstarch or two of flour, one pint of milk and a pinch of salt, whip this well, then set on stove and let it come to a boil, then add apples and mix, take off and let cool, when cool put in pie pan, lined with your pie dough and bake, when baked have the whites of the eggs whipped stiff with two tablespoonful sugar added, spread on pie and return to oven and let brown.

This can be made without boiling the custard.
