Melissa's Maple Apple Pie

Fall is in full swing here in New Jersey: crisp days, beautiful foliage, and tons of apples at our local orchards! Our dear friend Melissa from The Maple Shop in Chester, NJ shared her all-time favorite apple pie recipe — made with (of course!) pure Vermont maple syrup. Head to the orchard and come home to bake this quick, easy, delicious pie with your freshly-picked apples.

  • 1 Pie Crust (fresh or frozen)
  • 6 Apples (peeled, cored and sliced)
  • ½ c Vermont Maple Syrup
  • 1 ½ T Cornstarch
  • ½ t Cinnamon
  • ¼ t Nutmeg
  • 2 T Butter

Crumb Topping:

  • 1 c Flour
  • ½ c Maple Sugar (or any kind of granulated sugar)
  • ½ c Butter


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Place apple slices in a large bowl. Pour Maple Syrup over the apples and toss to coat. Sift cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg over the apples and mix well.
  • Turn the apples into pie crust and pat down to an even mound.
  • Dot with butter. Cover loosely with foil. Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Reduce temperature to 375 degrees. After 10 minutes, remove foil and evenly distribute crumb topping.
  • Bake for 45-60 minutes or until juices bubble out thickly.

Crumb Topping Directions:

  • With a fork, mix flour, maple sugar and butter until crumbs form.
  • If mixture seems too moist, add more flour.
