- 6 cups apples, peeled & sliced
- 1/2 cup pure maple syrup or 1/2 cup maple flavored syrup
- 1/4 cup whipping cream

- Prepare and roll out pastry for double-crust pie.

- Weave strips over filling for lattice crust.
- Press ends of strips into crust rim.
- Fold bottom pastry over strips; seal and crimp edge.

- Bake the pie in a 375-degree oven for 25 minutes.
- Remove the foil and bake the pie for about 30 minutes more or till the top is golden.
- Serve warm or cool.
Note: To make pastry cutouts on top of pie, roll out pastry scraps about 1/8 inch thick and use small cutters to form leaf shapes. Moisten with water and place on top of pie crust.
