   Minted Apple Slices Soften gelatine in cold water. Heat applesauce, sugar,

   marshmallows melt. Remove from heat and add softened gelatine to hot
   mixture, stirring until dissolved. Chill until partially congealed. Beat
   until fluffy. Beat whipping cream until fluffy. Add lemon juice gradually
   and beat until stiff. Fold into beaten gelatine mixture. Pour one-half of
   mixture into baked pastry shell. Tint remaining filling light green with
   few drops green food coloring and add peppermint extract. Spoon green layer
   carefully over light layer. Chill until congealed. Garnish top of pie with
   Minted Apple Slices. Serve.
   Minted Apple Slices: Core and pare 2 medium firm apples. Cut each into 8 or
   10 slices. Combine 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water, 1/2 teaspoon peppermint
   extract, and few drops green food coloring in pan. Bring to boil and add
   apple slices. Simmer until apples are transparent, about 5 minutes, turning
   once. Cool in syrup. For a sophisticated touch, add 2 tablespoons creme de
   menthe to the syrup as it cools. Drain apples on absorbent paper. Arrange
   on pie.
