Creating the "Parisian" apple pie may seem like a daunting task reserved for pastry chefs, but fear not! This recipe is designed to make the process accessible to all, without compromising on the enchanting flavors that define the dessert. Here's a quick glimpse of the steps involved:



  1. Gather all the ingredients and tools needed for this delicious homemade French-inspired apple pie.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugar thoroughly until light, fluffy, and doubled in volume, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Gradually pour in the milk and vegetable oil in a steady stream while continuing to mix.
  4. Sift in the flour, baking powder, and vanilla extract. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture using a spatula just until fully incorporated and no flour streaks remain.
  5. Prepare a 9-inch pie pan by coating the bottom and sides generously with softened butter. For optimal release, line the pan with parchment paper cut to fit up the sides. If using a non-stick removable bottom pan, simply coat with flour or breadcrumbs instead.
  6. Peel and core the apples, then slice into thin wedges. Artfully arrange the fresh apple slices in the prepared pie pan, mounding slightly in the center.
  7. Slowly pour the sweet apple batter over the apples in the pan until all the slices are just covered. Use a spatula to spread evenly if needed. Bake for about 40 minutes, until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  8. While the pie bakes, make the maple glaze. Melt the butter in a small saucepan or microwave-safe bowl. Stir in the sugar and 2-3 tablespoons of maple syrup until dissolved. When the pie is done, remove from the oven but keep the oven on. Brush the maple glaze evenly over the top while the pie is hot. Return to the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes more until the glaze is bubbling. Let cool at least 1 hour before slicing. Dust with powdered sugar and serve this sweet treat!
