rub soft butter on bottom and sides of deep dish pie pan , place pecans round side down till cover whole inside of pan, spread brown sugar till all nuts are covered , place one pie crust on top of nuts press till forms the bottom of pan set aside
in bowl place lemon juice, flour, white sugar, spices, vanilla mix well, add sliced apples and toss till coated, pour into piecrust making as even as u can cover with other pie crust, fold over sides crimp together dont worry about looks this is the bottom of your pie poke holes at random with fork for steam
place in 450 oven for 10 mins reduce heat to 350 for 45 mins
remove from oven, let sit till the bubbling stops ( importiant = u must flip this over to serve while its still hot the pecans are the top of your pie should be very shiny and all pastry is covered serve warm with ice cream
