Picture of Pi*r*Rectangular Flat Apple Pie
I don't remember how long ago or for what reason I first started baking apple pie in a jelly roll pan-  too many apples on hand?  Tons of people to feed?  What ever the reason, apple Flat Pie has become the family favorite and a huge hit at potlucks and picnics.

The secret to this delicious dessert is the piquant contrast between the tart apple filling and the sweet glazed crust.  Add to this flavor medley a flaky, buttery crust and you will experience Pure Pie Joy.

Here's how to start:

Step 1: Assemble your ingredients:

This sounds simply amazing! Thanks for sharing, and good luck in the contest!
Apple pie with GLAZE? Yes please. Also I do very much want one of those apple peelers. They're amazing.

Yes, once you buy an apple peeler/corer/slicer you'll ask "Why didn't my mother give me one of these the day I was BORN?!"

I have very few one-purpose kitchen gadgets but this is one I'll never be without. And they last a long time- I think I've had this one 15 years or more.
