     1/2 c  Butter
     1/2 c  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 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

   after 5 min. or the butter and sugar will harden and you won't get it out.

   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. 9/29/91
