A flavorful twist on the classic apple pie. Sweet apples drenched in maple, vanilla and cinnamon without over-doing it.

  • Bring maple syrup mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until the sugar dissolves, and the mixture thickens and turns clear. Fold in apple slices and return to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to stand for 15 minutes before spooning into a prepared pie crust or freezing.

I was in a hurry & didn't take the time to read the reviews until after I made this. I had doubled the recipe and used brown sugar instead of white. I put most of it in the freezer but left one to make up in an apple crisp the next day. I didn't find anything wrong with this recipe and my husband loved the apple crisp. I greased a 9x9 pan put my filling in and topped with a mixture of 1 cup flour 1 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup margarine baked at 350 for about 25 minutes. It was delicious. Not sure what all the bad reviews are about my bunch loved it! Read More

I agree with other users. This recipe required some "tweaking". First off it should be 3 tsp of cinnamon As well I added an additional 1 1/2 cups of water and cooked the apples in the syrup mixture. It was still a little on the thick side but overall not too bad. Read More

I'm not above admitting I did something wrong but I really had to play with the amounts in this recipe. the cinnamon is very strong and the mixture got extremely thick before it got anywhere close to clear. I had to add extra water to thin it out. I haven't put it in a pie but have tasted it. It is ok but has too much cinnamon for my liking. Read More

I have never rated a recipe but this was just awful... TOO much cinnamon (and I used less) and how could a mixture with that much cinnamon be 'clear'? The whole mess was just a waste of time and ingredients should have read the reviews first! Read More

This pie had very little flavor. My husband said it tasted like nothing. I am not a good enough cook to be at the recipe tweaking stage just yet...which is why I rely heavily on this website. My mistake was not reading the reviews before making this dessert....Sorry to have to be so critical. Read More

After reading the other reviews I tried this with the following alterations and it got rave reviews with my family and our guests. And our version has NO SUGAR. Changed water to apple juice and reduced to 1 Cup reduced corn starch to 1/3 Cup and left out sugar completely. Reduced cinnamon to 2 tsp. It was perfect. We diced our apples to use in mini-pies and refrigerated overnight before using don't know if that would made a difference. This will be a keeper as I have had trouble finding an apple pie recipe we love. Read More
