Hoosier Deep Dish Apple Pie

"This recipe has been in my assorted catch-all recipe "box" for years. I was looking for an old recipe last weekend and ran across it. Sounds delicious to me. I'm saving it here so that I don't lose it, as I just spent about 2 hours searching my recipe sites and my old Taste of Home magazines knowing I had just read it somewhere!"

ingredients

directions

  • Mix melted butter, brown sugar, heated honey and chopped pecans, and spread in the bottom of a deep dish pie plate.
  • Place one pie crust over mixture, and smooth up along sides of pie plate.
  • Spread sliced apples over pie crust and season with sugar, butter pieces, lemon juice, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg.
  • Cover apple mixture with top crust.
  • Crimp edges of top and bottom crusts, and prick to allow steam to escape.
  • Bake pie in a pre-heated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes; then reduce heat to 325 degrees and continue to bake for 1/2 hour more or until apples are tender and crust has turned flaky and golden brown.
  • Let pie cool for 15 to 20 minutes, then invert onto pie platter and serve with pecan-caramel side facing up.
  • Note: If you make this pie in advance, leave it in pie pan until 20 minutes before serving, then pop in a 325 degree oven for 5-10 minutes to let pecan-caramel glaze soften before inverting pie.
