Maple-Cream Apple Pie Recipe

“A rich, maple cream filling topped with cinnamony apples and a crunchy streusel topping” is how field editor Sue Smith of Norwalk, Connecticut describes her heavenly holiday pie. “I’ve also layered the maple cream and streusel from this recipe in parfait glasses for a quick, elegant dessert.” —Sue A. Smith, Norwark, Connecticut

"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."
