  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Make pie crusts as directed on box for Two-Crust Pie using 9-inch glass pie plate.
  • 2
    In large bowl, gently mix filling ingredients; spoon into crust-lined pie plate. Top with second crust; seal edges and flute. Cut slits or shapes in several places in top crust. Cover edge with 2- to 3-inch-wide strips of foil to prevent excessive browning; remove foil during last 15 minutes of baking.

    Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown. Immediately after removing pie from oven, drizzle with caramel topping; sprinkle with pecans. Cool on cooling rack at least 2 hours before serving.

Expert Tips

  • Tart apples, such as Granny Smith, McIntosh or Haralson, make the most flavorful pies. Eating apples, like Red Delicious, do not cook down as much during baking.
  • Two 21-ounce cans of apple pie filling can be substituted for the fresh apple filling. Toasted, chopped walnuts may be substituted for the pecans.
