“This special recipe combines all the warm, delicious flavors of the season and makes a truly unique presentation. It gets rave reviews each year and has become a holiday tradition at our house.” Trisha Fox - Plainfield, Illinois
I live in a big apple-producing state, so I think this recipe represents our region well. I tasted this pie many years ago when my children's babysitter made it. I asked for the recipe and have made it many times since.
Here’s a dessert any busy hostess could love! Shared by Carolyn Ruch of New London, Wisconsin, it goes together in minutes, looks and tastes like you really fussed, and is easily doubled to feed any size gathering.
In charge of dessert for a fund-raising dinner at our church, I experimented and came up with this scrumptious pie made in a jelly roll pan. It fed a group and got rave reviews. With flavorful apples and maple syrup, it gives a true taste of the Northeast.

This pie won Grand Champion in the Apple Pie category at the 1992 Okanogan County Fair. The pie looks traditional, but making your own filling gives it a different flair and great taste. —Dolores Scholz, Tonasket, Washington
A cool, creamy version of the original, this delicious dessert is the perfect finish to a satisfying summer meal. Its crumbly topping and smooth apple filling and crowd-pleasers! Be prepared to serve seconds.

"We always have an abundance of apples in the fall, so I like to make this easy pie," says Shirley Vredenburg of Ossineke, Michigan. "My husband is diabetic, and this recipe fits into his diet...but everyone enjoys it."
The area where we live used to be an apple orchard, so we and our neighbors have apple trees in our yards. I received this recipe from my sister more than 25 years ago, and it's still popular in our family.
