Original recipe yields 1 - 9 inch pie



  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). On a lightly floured surface, roll out pie crusts, and set aside. In a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice; set aside.
  2. Combine 1/4 cup brown sugar, butter and corn syrup; spread in bottom of a 9 inch pie dish (glass or ceramic works best). Sprinkle with chopped pecans. Cover with one pie crust. In a small bowl, mix together 1/2 cup brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon.
  3. Arrange half of the apples in pastry lined plate. Sprinkle with half the brown sugar mixture. Repeat layers. Cover with remaining pie crust, fold top edge under, and crimp. Cut a few slits in the top to vent steam.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes. Loosen edge of pie, and carefully invert pie onto a serving dish. Serve warm.

This is just a note to others making this pie. I make a similar pie with peaches...and the best way to not have the pie stick to the plate is to line the pie plate with foil. Then coat the foil with a little butter before putting the caramel topping down. This saves a sticky pie pan and can prevent the pie from bubbling over as well. :)



Overall this is a good recipe. However, the baking time was about 15 minutes too long. Had I left it as long as recommended, I would have totally burnt the pie. Also I would add way more apples next time. This ended up being a rather hollow pie when inverted. I would make this again though, just taking into considerations the above.



This recipe looks just like one that my husband has been forever singing the praises of. He used to have something just like this at a restaurant that went out of business - so I'll try this and see how it turns out. Looks delicious - thanks Donna!
