I have been making this pie for my family for years. When my son was young, he would ask me to make "caramel apples in a pie".

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt 1/4 cup butter and pour into the bottom of the pie crust; spread to cover bottom.
  2. Sprinkle brown sugar over butter and cover with chopped pecans.
  3. Place apple slices in pie crust over the nuts and sugar.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  5. Sprinkle over the apple slices.
  6. Sprinkle with water and dot apple slices with additional butter.
  7. Place top crust over apples and flute edges.
  8. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes.
  9. Reduce heat to 350° and bake for an additional 35-40 minutes.
  10. If fluted edges start to get too dark, cover with foil.

Very good apple pie. I cooked as directed & fortunately checked it after 25 minutes. It was a bit overcooked already. Still had a good flavor but I plan to make for a friend next week & will check it earlier. Made for your Football Pool win.

This was the tastiest pie I believe I have ever tasted. Loved the pecans on the bottom of the pie. Thanks for posting such a wonderful recipe.

This was requested by my daughter for Thanksgiving. It's so good and the pecans on the bottom are a nice surprise. I think maybe if the butter and brown sugar is cooked a bit before pouring into the pie it would be more caramel-like. I'll try that next and let you know!
