Potluck Apple Pie Recipe

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. -Alma Lynne Gravel, Trappe, Pennsylvania
