  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a 9 inch deep-dish pie pan, combine pecans, brown sugar and margarine; spread into a single layer. Roll out dough, and place bottom crust over pecan mixture.
  3. In a large bowl, combine apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour into crust in pan. Top with second crust. Fold edges of crust over, and flute to seal edges. Make several small slits in the top to allow steam to escape.
  4. Place pan on foil or cookie sheet during baking to guard against spillage. Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and apples are tender.
  5. Cool pie in pan for 5 minutes. Place serving plate over pie, and flip to invert, being careful not to come in contact with molten sugar. If some of the nuts stick to the pan, remove them with a knife, and place on pie. Allow to cool for 1 hour.


  • Tip
  • Parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

Tasted wonderful - nice twist on the traditional apple pie! I chose to roast the pecans first for about 20 minutes at 300 degrees. Another note I'll have to remember for next time: If all you ...

YUMMY!!!! I was kinda scared when I took it out of the oven and flipped it over, it didn't look so good, but it turned out great. I added more sugar to the apples (1/2 cup white, and 1/2 cup br...

I made this a day before Thanksgiving and found the crust to be soggy. It was lovely golden brown when I removed it from the oven. It inverted beautifully...thanks to the parchment paper recomm...

Even the best pie makers in our group loved this recipe. Because I didn't have a deep dish I used my spring form pan, lined the bottom with waxed paper and added about 10 minutes to the cooking...
