Reviews for Maple-Glazed Apple Pie
"I've made this for my husband's grandfather several times - made him declare me a "professional pie maker" (and it was the first time I'd ever made a pie!). :)"
"Our favorite way to enjoy apple pie. Absolutely delicious and very pretty presentation as well."
"BEST apple pie recipe I've ever had! I normally have one piece just to see how my pie turned out and then leave the rest for the family. Well, I have to fight myself to let the kids and hubby have more than one piece of this!"
