Share login details between sites (sessions)

I have a .Net 2010 c# web appllication where i handle the logins myself.  Upon successfully logging into the site I stuff the logged in userid into a Session variable.  On subsequent page loads I first check to see if the session variable is set; if it is not I kick them back to the login page.

I have a request to send be able to send the user's login status to another custom web application on the same server.  So once they are logged in to MyApp the click click a link to AnotherApp and the other application can tell they are logged in as well as their logon name.  How can this be done?
