1In a large bowl, toss apples with lime juice. Combine dry ingredients; add to the apples and toss lightly. Place bottom pastry in a 9 inch pie plate; fill with apple mixture. Dot with butter. Cover with top crust. Flute edges high; cut steam vent. Bake at 400 degrees for 40-45 minutes; or until golden brown and apples are tender.
2Meanwhile, for topping, melt butter in a small saucepan. Stir in brown sugar and cream; bring to boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in pecans. Pour over top crust. Return to oven for 3-4 minutes or until bubbly. Serve warm.
