Betty Crocker Apple Pie with Crunchy Pecan Glaze (circa 1970)


Sometimes the "retro" recipes are so much more comforting than the new ones being developed at the present time.  This is a tried and true classic.  Enjoy!

Pastry for a 10 inch pie (either homemade or store bought is fine)
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup Gold Medal Flour
1 t. nutmeg
1 t. cinnamon
dash salt
2/3 cup chopped pecans
8 cups thinly sliced pared tart apples
3 T. butter or margarine

Heat oven to 425 degrees.  Prepare pastry if using homemade.  

Stir together sugar, flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt and pecans; mix with apples.  Turn into pastry lined pie pan.  Dot with butter.

Cover edge with 2 - 3 inch strip of aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning; remove foil during last 15 minutes of baking.

Bake for 50 - 60 minutes.  Top with glaze.

For the crunchy pecan glaze:
In a small saucepan combine 1/4 cup brown sugar (packed), 1/3 cup chopped pecans and 2 T. light cream.  Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until of glaze consistency.
