Ingredients

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  1. Roll out the pie crust on parchment paper and place on a cookie sheet – set aside.
  2. Heat a medium size sauce pan on medium heat. Add in the butter, maple syrup and the lemon juice, stir to blend and then add in the apples.
  3. Cook for a few minutes stirring occasionally just until the apples have softened and absorbed the flavors of the syrup. Approximately 3-5 minutes based on the thickness of the apple slices.
  4. When apples have cooled for about 10 minutes, lay them out on the pie crust 2 inches from the edge.
  5. Roll up the crust, baste with egg wash and sprinkle with the turbinado sugar.
  6. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the crust has browned.
