Maple Cream Apple Pie

Hey there, and welcome back, friends.

You are in for a delicious treat!

Maple Cream Apple Pie

This maple cream apple pie tastes like a tart apple pie and has a luscious creaminess sweetened with maple syrup. It’s made with a few simple ingredients that transform this filling into a creamy filling.

You might wonder what the difference is between a classic apple pie and a cream apple pie.

A cream apple pie has a gooey, creamy filling that adds this fun extra touch to an apple pie. This creamy filling is sweetened with maple syrup to give it an extra fall flavor.

The cream filling is made with cornstarch, sugar, maple syrup, and some heavy cream. While the pie bakes and the apples become tender, the filling becomes this thick gooey, creamy filling that is so tasty!

How to Make Maple Cream Apple Pie

In a large bowl, combine the sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Add the apples and toss in the mixture until all the cornstarch is combined. Combine the maple syrup and heavy cream, and then pour over the apple mixture.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out one of the pie doughs to a 1/8-in thick circle. Transfer the dough to a 9-inch pie dish.

Add the filling to the pie dish. Then roll out the second dough and either transfer it to cover the pie dish (for a double-crust pie) or cut the second dough into strips for a lattice top or decorative crust. Your choice!! Trim the edges of the crust and decorate as desired.
