You can make this pie without the nuts if you prefer, and it is still very delicious. It's great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. —Noelle Myers, Grand Forks, North Dakota

Nutritional Facts

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle with vinegar. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball.
  2. Divide dough in half so that one portion is slightly larger than the other. Roll out larger portion to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Transfer pastry to pie plate. Trim pastry even with edge.
  3. In a large bowl, toss apples with the ginger ale, lemon juice and vanilla. Combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg; add to apple mixture and toss to coat. Spoon into crust; dot with butter.
  4. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie. Place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in pastry.
  5. Bake at 400° for 55-65 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cover edges with foil during the last 30 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary.
  6. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar; cook and stir until mixture comes to a boil and sugar is dissolved. Stir in pecans; cook 1 minute longer. Remove from the heat; stir in cream and vanilla. Immediately pour over pie. Bake 3-5 minutes longer or until topping is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 8 servings.

This pie is delicious! It's a bit time consuming if you make your own crust, but it's well worth it! I've made this pie several times and my husband always raves about it...it's his favorite pie!

It directs you to bake the pie with a crust on top and then put the topping on the crust and bake a few minutes longer. That way the praline topping is on top of the crust.

Why does the recipe tell you to put a crust on the top of the pie but the picture is open????
