Maple Apple Pie Recipe

Topics: Recipes

September is days away, school is starting or has already started, the nights are getting cooler. Yes oh yes, Fall is fast approaching.

September is the month for apples and we have so many wonderful orchards in and around Chester, New Jersey. I cant wait to take the kids apple picking! Since many of you will be doing the same, I’d like to share with you my all time favorite apple pie recipe made with, of course, pure Vermont Maple Syrup!

This apple pie is quick, easy and delicious! Warning! Most of the recipies I tell you about will NOT be diet friendly. Sorry. I love butter! Feel free to substitute ingredients with healthier options and let me know how it works out. The older I get, the more I think, I really should be eating healthier. Good thing Maple Syrup has so many vitamins and minerals in it—a future blog post for sure!
