Reviews for Maple-Cream Apple Pie
"A hit from day one"
"This is my favorite pie. I make it when ever I need to bring a dessert or when company comes and I have enough apples. I'm making 2 tonight again! Everyone Loves it and askes for the recipe . I'd give it 6 stars if I could. Thank you"
"The recipe sounded delicious, so I had high hopes. But the maple filling was overbearing and there was too much of it. My family did not like it so I won't be making it again."
"I made this pie 3 years ago and it is my favorite apple pie! I'm making two and taking them in for a work pitch in and will be taking several copies of the recipe!"
