Apple Slab Pie with Maple Icing

I have a sweet treat for you today.  I made this for dessert the night we did the progressive dinner with friends.  I don't generally try out new recipes on people other than family, but I figured there was no way it could suck too bad.  I mean, it's apple pie with maple syrup icing on top.


I got the recipe here:

Now let me give you a few quick notes:

1.  Definitely read through the comments on the post.  There are several different variations brought up.
2.  I used Special K with Strawberries (minus the strawberries) in place of the cornflakes.
3.  I made my own crust.  Before you judge me as an overachiever, it's only the second time I've ever made crust from scratch.  I think I was 19 or 20 the first time.  I was totally planning on using store-bought, but then I got too lazy to run to the store.  I found a super easy recipe that uses a stand mixer.  It turned out amazing and there's no excuse for me to ever buy crust again.
4.  I didn't have any real maple syrup, so I used the sugar-laden, corn syrup crap.  I know, I know, but again, I would have had to go to the store.  I didn't use the total amount called for, 'cause I was afraid it would be too sweet, and instead cut it with a little milk.  It was yummy.
5.  And last, I used my super cute mini leaf cutters on some extra crust to decorate the top.

Here it is, hot out of the oven.







On goes the icing.







I didn't get any "on my plate" photos until the next day, and all the icing had soaked in.
Not a bad thing.




So easy and so delicious.
