I have not tried this recipe yet, but it sounds wonderful.  It’s from Taste of Home magazine.  The woman who submitted it says that even when someone in the family other than their mother volunteers to make apple pie, they always make sure their mom makes hers, too!


1 cup sugar

2 tablespoons flour

1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnmon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon salt

6 medium tart apples, peeled and thinly sliced (about 2-1/4 pounds)

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 – 14 oz package refrigerated pie pastry

2 tablespoons butter

3 tablespoons maple syrup, divided

warm maple syrup, optional

Combine first five ingredients.  In another bowl, toss apples with lemon juice.  Add sugar mixture and toss to coat.

Unroll one pastry sheet into a 9 inch pie plate, trim even with rim.  Add filling.  Dot with butter, then drizzle with 2 tablespoons maple syrup.  Unroll remaining pastry and place over filling.  Trim, seal and flute edge.  Cut slits in top, brush pastry with one tablespoon maple syrup.

Bake at 425 degrees F for 40 to 45 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly.  Cover pie loosely with foil during the last 20 minutes if needed to prevent overbrowning.  Remove foil, cool on wire rack.  If desired, serve with warm maple syrup.
