You'll love the smell in your kitchen—and the smiles on everybody's faces—when you make this scrumptious pie that's drizzled with caramel sauce. It's takes me back home to Virginia and being at my granny's table. —Gloria Castro, Santa Rose, California

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 24, 2013

This pie is amazing! I made it for Thanksgiving last year and my Sister-In-Law requested it for this year again. The caramel, pecans, and apple together make every bite scrumptious. I slice the apples as thin as possible.

I made this pie yesterday and it was out of this world. I used a 9 in,. pie shell and agree with the others who said it was enough for two pies. I will make this again.
