Caramel Pecan Apple Pie

"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"."

    This is really yummy pie. Good flavor of caramel and crunch of pecans. Made for 2018 football pool.

    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!

    This is double-delicious. The pecans on the bottom taste delicious. My baked pie probably won't set up because silly me forgot to add the flour! It still tastes great, though! I made it exactly as stated only I did brush some half-and-half and sprinkle some sugar on the top crust before baking. I will be using this recipe for one of my pies I will be baking for Thanksgiving. Congratulations on your football pool win!
