Select nice even-shaped pippin apples; cut off the top third horizontally and empty them out to form cases; hollow out the tops of the apples as well.
Enclose each apple with its quail in a layer of short paste as one would a Rabotte de Pomme. Place on a baking tray, brush with beaten egg and place in a hot oven for approximately 30 minutes.
To serve: arrange on a serviette.
