Your house will smell like Thanksgiving and your mouth will be watering when that drizzle of maple glaze first hits the crust. Maple glaze was most definitely an afterthought but quite possibly the best apple pie decision in the history of apple pies. And the great news about slab pie is that you’ll likely have a few slices leftover.
