    Sounds great! I may have to try that as we have some maple syrup that needs to be used.

    Sounds great.
    I especially like the easy crust recipe - I hate fiddling with pastry.

    I don't have a family syrup source, but I do get my maple syrup from a County park that taps their own trees and has a wood-fired sugar shack onsite.
    The syrup is just a little smoky and so good I can eat it with a spoon and nothing else!

    If you want to go even easier with the crust, you can make the top what my kids call 'Dinosaur Scales' - press and pinch pieces flat and lay them close together all over the top so that it looks like scales.

    I don't bake much now, but thanks to your recipe and the reminder of how wonderful maple syrup is, I might get back in the baking groove!

    Maple syrup is my sweetener of choice and I use it instead of syrup or even honey whenever possible. I used to work at a place that had sugar maples and a sugaring shack, and I got to tap trees and make syrup for a season. That experience has stuck with me and has made me appreciate the maple sugaring tradition even more here in New England.

    Thanks for the recipe.
