Apple Upside-Down Pie

    Delicious things sometimes look a little homely. Yes, this pie is a member of the Lee Family (Ug Lee and Home Lee), but if it is the same recipe as on the box of refrigerator pie crusts, it is divine and one of the most asked for pies during the holidays. Enjoy with some good vanilla ice cream. Worth every calorie. Worth giving up seconds of mashed potatoes and gravy to have. If the pecans get a little out of place, just tuck them back in with a wide knife.

    Beautiful Pie almost to pretty to eat! But,oh so yummy. This is my new favorite apple pie served as suggested with vanilla ice cream. I only made a couple of changes due to my family personal dislikes. I didn't use granny smith apples and I left out the nutmeg.

    Soooo Yummy...it's almost like having an apple and pecan pie in one! Took to a Labor Day party and brought home an empty plate. Will make many more of these!

    What a great recipe! This was a big hit with my husband, who loves pecan pie, so the mixture of the two, apples and pecans, was a winner! Also, it was so easy to put together--but DO follow the instructions as the pecan mixture can overflow briefly. I think this will be a great holiday dessert alongside pumpkin pie.

    just awesome! I love to bake but don't usually make pies. This was easy to put together and taste wonderful.

    Not the prettiest presentation but the first bite and you forget it's looks. Very good and certainly a do over!

    Absolutely awesome! This is the best thing that I've ever put in my mouth! :) Be sure not to let it sit longer than 10 minutes or else it will be hard to remove from the pie plate.

    Awesome and easy recipe. I am not a gourmet baker, but I felt like one after making this pie. I used different apples when the Jonathan were not available and my family loved it. It has turned out perfect the 4-5 times that I have baked it.

    A great recipe! Made it with four different kinds of apples for variety-fantastic!

    Absolutely one of my favorite pies to make during the holidays or for any special occasion! Definitely do NOT let this sit more than the 10 minutes suggested because you will have to chisel it out of the pie plate and while still edible, certainly is a mess and makes for some wasted precious pie crust. Don't hesitate, go make this NOW!

    Outstanding!! And worked perfectly (no sticking!) in my new Demarle at Home pie mold. I just need to remember to get vanilla ice cream next time I make it!

    I have made 4 of these pies now, & they are outstanding. I only changed one thing, I added one extra apple of each kind, so 5 of one, 3 of the other. But I have a hint that really saves clean up time, & makes the pie look so much prettier. I lightly buttered the bottom glass pie plate that i used. Almost all the pecans came out on the flip, next time maybe I will put it on a little thicker, I am pouring butter, brown sugar & pecans on it anyway. I even smeared some butter on the plate on the outside cause mine boiled over. This saved me so much time cleaning up, no more scraping caramel off glass. Also, I diced my apples instead of slicing I wanted to be sure they got done. I packed the apples down good, makes for a nice, fuller piece of pie. This pie was so easy to make and I think its the best pie I have ever had! Don't forget the ice cream!
