Apple Pecan Pie

Apple Pecan Pie
We had this pie for Thanksgiving dessert... it was SO good!! A friend shared this recipe with me. It was a prize winning recipe from an apple pie contest.
  • 2 store bought pie crusts
  • 6 c cored and sliced apples
  • 1½ c pecan halves
  • 1 stick better, softened
  • 1⅛ t ground cinnamon
  • ½ t nutmeg
  • 1½ c brown sugar
  • ½ c white sugar
  • 2 T fresh lemon juice
  • 3 T flour
  • 1 T apple pie spice
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  1. Rub softened butter on bottom and sides of a deep dish pie pan. Place pecans round side down until they cover the inside of the pan. Spread brown sugar on top of nuts. Place one pie crust on top of nuts and press down on. Set aside.
  2. In medium bowl place lemon juice, flour, white sugar, spices, and vanilla and mix well. Add sliced apples and toss till coated. Pour into piecrust making as even as you can. Cover with other pie crust. Fold over sides and crimp together. Don't worry about appearance because this will be the bottom of your pie. Poke holes at random with fork for steam.
  3. Place in 450 degree oven for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue to cook for 45 additional minutes.
  4. Remove from oven, and allow pie to sit until the bubbling stops. Once bubbling stops but pie is still warm, flip the pie over. The pecans are the top of your pie. Serve warm with ice cream.
