  6. When the crust comes out of the oven, drain any juice off the apples. and pour the apples on the crust and spread evenly. Then pour the caramel over the apples staying about 1/2" away from the edges. Then drop tsp. of the reserved batter over that spreading as well as you can sprinkle with reserved chopped pecans return to oven and bake for 15 - 20 mins @ 350.
