I love making this pie! The taste reminds me of apple dumplings. People [the few] who have never had this before are delighted with the presentation!

Ingredients

Glaze and Crust:
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
1 tablespoon corn syrup
1/2 cup pecan halves
1 box (15 oz) refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box

Filling:
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (4 medium)

Topping:
Whipped cream, if desired

Directions

Heat oven to 425°F. In 9-inch glass pie pan, mix brown sugar, butter and corn syrup. Spread evenly in bottom of pan. Arrange pecans over mixture. Make pie crusts as directed on box for Two-Crust Pie,placing bottom crust over mixture in pan.
In small bowl, mix granulated sugar, flour and cinnamon. Arrange half of apple slices in crust-lined pan. Sprinkle with half of sugar mixture. Repeat with remaining apple slices and sugar mixture. Top with second crust; seal edge and flute. Cut slits in several places in top crust.
Place pie on sheet of foil on middle oven rack in oven; bake 8 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F; bake 35 to 45 minutes longer or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown. Immediately run knife
around edge of pie to loosen. Place serving plate upside down over pie; turn plate and pan over. Remove pan. Serve warm or cool with whipped cream.
