    2                    Pie crust -- may be frozen as
    1                    Apple pie; recipe -- your fav
      1/2  cup           Pecans -- whole
      1/2  cup           Butter
      1/2  cup           Brown sugar
 In this recipe, it is the construction that is important.  Get the apples and
spices ready for your favorite 9 pie. Prepare or buy 2 pie crusts. Now get your
pie pan ready. My daughter uses a pyrex pie pan. Butter the pie pan completely,
and well. Don't miss a spot. Use the entire 1/2 cup of butter and get the sides
too.Place the pecans in the bottom of the pie pan, and sprinkle with the brown
sugar.	Now, put your bottom pie crust on top of the pecans. In fact, forget that
they (the pecans) are there. Just proceed with your apple pie, as usual, with one
exception. You don't want a bulging pie, kinda firm and flat.  When you have both
crusts sealed and fluted, bake at 400 degrees for exactly 50 min.  Cool for 5
min. on a rack and turn out on a serving dish immediately. When you do this, you
are flipping it over so that the pecans are on the top, and the usual top of the
pie is on the bottom.  This recipe is my daughter, Lois’s. She says that you must
flip it out after 5 min. or the butter and sugar will harden and you won't get it
out. Let me tell you it is always a hit and people are astounded. The combination
of the sugar, pecans and apple pie are delicious. You should keep your apple pie
filling on the tart side. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do.  NOTE:   I 
know that this is NOT a deep dish  apple pie..but this is OUR Thanksgiving
specialty and I hope you will all enjoy this.
