I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Pecan Apple Pie

I love pecan pie, but I normally only eat a small amount of it because it's so sweet.   I love this pie, because it's not a sweet.    Great for a Thanksgiving dessert.

(serves 8)

*1 1/4 cup pecans, chopped
*1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed firmly
*1/3 cup butter, melted
*2 pie crusts (make your own or buy refrigerated pie crusts)
*1  teaspoons all-purpose flour
*6 medium granny smith apples, sliced and peeled
*1/4 cup granulated sugar
*2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
*3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
*1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

~Heat oven to 375 degrees.
~In a small bowl, mix pecans, brown sugar, and butter.
~Spread evenly over the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate.
~Dust both sides of crust with the 1 teaspoon of flour.
~Place dusted bottom crust over the pecan mixture.
~Press down the insides of the pan.
~In a large bowl, combine apples, granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons of flour, cinnamon and nutmeg.
~Spoon into pie crust.
~Top with second pie crust and seal both crusts together.
~Cut 3-5 slits in top of crust.
~I like to lightly sprinkle crust with cinnamon sugar, but this is optional.
~Place pie plate on cookie sheet, to catch any over spill.
~Bake for 45-50 minutes or until crust in a golden brown.
~Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
~Place a large serving place over pie and careful invert pie.
~Cool completely before serving.
