Candy Apple Pie

This is the only apple pie my husband will eat, but that's all right since he makes it as often as I do. Like a combination of apple and pecan pie, it's a sweet treat that usually tops off our holiday meals from New Year's all the way through to Christmas! -Cindy Kleweno, Burlington, Colorado

Ingredients

  • 6 cups sliced peeled tart apples
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • TOPPING:

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, toss apples with lime juice. Combine sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt; add to apples and toss lightly.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll one half of dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Add filling; dot with butter. Roll remaining dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle. Place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edge. Cut slits in top.
  • Bake until golden brown and apples are tender, 40-45 minutes.
  • For topping, melt butter in a small saucepan. Stir in brown sugar and cream; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and stir in pecans.
  • Pour over top crust. Bake until bubbly, 3-4 minutes longer. Place on a wire rack. Serve warm.
Editor's Note
Combine 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour and 1/2 tsp. salt; cut in 1 cup cold butter until crumbly. Gradually add 1/3 to 2/3 cup ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
