Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Yummy - this apple pie recipe is perfect! With just the right mix of apples and pecans, you get a bit of crunch in every bite. The generous portion of brown sugar caramelizes while baking which adds to the wonderful flavor.

6 c
cored, sliced granny smith apples
1-1/2 c

1-1/8 tsp
