1
In a 10-inch pie plate, combine pecans, brown sugar, and butter, spreading evenly over bottom of pan.

Spoon apple mixture into the pie-crust lined plate. Add second pie crust and flute edges. Cut several slits in top for steam to escape and place on a cookie sheet.
5
Bake pie in a preheated 375-degree oven for 40-50 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool at least 1 hour before serving.
