  • Stir together oats, pecans, brown sugar, 1/3 cup of the flour, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of the cinnamon in a medium bowl until combined. Add butter, and using your fingers, rub butter into flour mixture until well incorporated and mixture begins to clump. Refrigerate oat mixture until ready to use.

  • On a lightly floured surface, stack both pie crusts on top of each other, and roll into a 13-inch circle. Transfer to a 9 1/2-inch pie plate, pressing into bottom and up the sides. Fold edges under, and crimp, if desired. Refrigerate crust until ready to bake.

  • Gently fold together apples, honey, and remaining 3 tablespoons flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a large bowl until combined. Spoon apple mixture into prepared crust, mounding slightly in the center. Top with oat mixture.

  • Place pie on prepared baking sheet, and bake in preheated oven on bottom rack until crust begins to brown, about 18 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F, and bake until apples are tender and filling begins to bubble, about 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes more, covering loosely with aluminum foil to prevent excess browning after 30 to 40 minutes, if needed. Transfer to a wire rack to let cool completely, about 2 hours. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature. Store in refrigerator for up to 3 days.
