Dessert & Baked Goods » Maple-Pecan Apple Pie
Home cook Denise LaRoche takes a classic apple pie and turns up the volume with this award-winning dessert from the Smolak Farms Pie Recipe Contest. A simple pie dough is filled with layers of thinly-sliced apples and a vanilla bean sugar mixture. Denise reduces pure maple syrup and drizzles it atop a pecan crumble topping, allowing the intense maple flavor to penetrate through to the soft, baked apples. Follow Denise's decorative serving suggestions and sweeten whipped cream with a touch of maple syrup, then decorate with candied pecans.
