This is one of the best apple pies I've ever tasted. No one believes that it is homemade because of it's glazed maple top coat (which makes it taste wonderful!)

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!). :)

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!
