A perfect blend of unique flavors comes together to make this amazing apple pie. I just came up with it one day when I couldn't find an apple pie recipe that was appealing.

  • Toss the apples with maple syrup and vanilla extract. Spread 1/3 of the apples into the pie pan and sprinkle with the sugar mixture. Repeat the layers with the remaining apples and sugar. Cover the pie with the top crust and pinch the edges to seal.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the crust is golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.

I have to say that this pie came out amazing. It was very simple to make and tastes fantastic. This was the first pie I have ever baked from scratch (I used the No Fail Pie Crust recipe) and it came out better than anything my parents have ever made. My dad said it rivaled my grandmothers so I know it has something going for it. The vanilla and maple syrup add interesting notes of flavor. In summary great tasting and easy to make. I loved it.

I didn't find this to be sweet enough would probably add a bit more maple syrup next time. Read More

Prepared this pie for Thanksgiving and I hit it outta the park..!! I did bake the crust a bit before adding the apples though. The crust was perfect in every way. The pie was the belle of the ball..!! I was very proud of it too as it's my 1st pie and I'm 57. I'm gonna bake the Christmas edition in my new Emile Henri deep dish pie pan - a thank you gift. Thanx for sharing Laura. Read More

Just what I was waiting for!! So much flavor. I have been looking for a recipe for apple pie for years that encompasses the cinnamon and nutmeg flavors and I could never find the right one. Now I have found it! Thank you!! Now this is the only apple pie recipe I use for my family. I made this recipe twice. Once with pie crust on top and once with a crumb topping. Both ways are excellent! This is not your grandmother's "traditional" apple pie. I absolutely LOVE IT! Read More

I have made this 3 times now and it is my husbands favorite apple pie recipe. The cook time is way too SHORT though. I have increased it up to 1 hour 15 minutes to try to get the crust done and some of the soup cooked. Next time I make it I will add the 2 TBL flour to the cinn / sugar mixture someone else suggested. I also did brush a beaten egg on the top crust and sprinkled it with some sugar and cinnamon.
