Make this pie the morning of your gathering. After it cools, pour the luscious praline topping over the crust. If your family likes to enjoy dessert after dinner settles, put the pie in the oven when you sit down to eat your meal, and serve it warm later.

How to Make It

Step 1

Fit 1 piecrust into a 9-inch pie plate according to package directions.

Step 2

Stir together sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Stir in apples; spoon mixture into crust. Dot with 2 tablespoons butter; sprinkle evenly with lemon juice. Top with remaining piecrust; fold edges under, and crimp. Cut several slits in top.

Step 3

Bake pie at 400° for 45 minutes on lower oven rack, shielding with aluminum foil after 30 minutes to prevent excessive browning. Remove from oven, and let cool.

Step 4

Melt 1/4 cup butter in a small saucepan; stir in brown sugar and whipping cream. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly; cook 1 minute, and remove from heat. Stir in pecans, and let stand 5 minutes. Slowly drizzle mixture over pie.

This recipe was awesome...I would rate 4 3/4 stars because I like my praline topping not as crunchy so I add 4 tbl of heavy whipping cream instead of 2...I used to buy this pie from my favorite restaurant for $25 and ppl would always ask me to bring I can do it myself...THANK YOU!!! Oh and I used Pillsbury pie crust.
