Ingredients

  • 7 cups peeled and sliced Granny Smith apples (about 5 medium)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup uncooked quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 (15-oz.) package refrigerated piecrusts
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • Jarred caramel topping, vanilla ice cream

Preparation

Prep Time:
Total: 1 Hour, 55 Minutes

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 375°. Stir together first 3 ingredients, 1/4 cup flour, and 1/4 tsp. salt until well blended.
  2. 2. Cut butter into remaining 1/2 cup flour with a pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles small peas. Stir in brown sugar, oats, and remaining 1/4 tsp. salt.
  3. 3. Fit piecrust into a 9-inch pie plate according to package directions; fold edges under, and crimp. Place apple mixture in piecrust, and top with brown sugar mixture, pressing gently to adhere. Shield edges of crust with aluminum foil. Place pie on a foil-lined baking sheet.
  4. 4. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes. Remove foil from crust, and bake 25 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with pecans, and bake 5 to 7 minutes or until pecans are toasted. Let pie stand 30 minutes to 2 hours before serving. Serve with caramel topping and ice cream.
