JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:

✔ Make sure you make the pie crust, FIRST. I have created a step-by-step guide showing you exactly how to make the best pie crust. My pie crust dough recipe does make two pie crust but for this apple pecan pie you will only need one pie crust. No worries, my pie crust recipe is super easy to half.

 I used a mix of of gala and granny smith apples because they bake the best and I love the tart flavors of these apples, especially in this apple pecan pie.

✔ Serve this pie warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or top with whipped cream!

    Delish! I wanted an apple/pecan combination and one that was simple. Holy cow – ignore the simple portion as the pie turned out fabulously.  I wasn’t expecting it to have such a strong pecan pie taste underlying the apple pie.
    We used some maple nut ice cream – over the top!
    I had been starting to think what I would make for my Thanksgiving pie and this will be it.
    Thanks!

    Oh god, these should be forbidden! They look insane!

    I just put 2 of these in the oven!! Can’t wait to eat some later for Thanksgiving. 🙂  I used 8 apples and the filling ended up making enough for 2 pies.  Is this recipe for 1 pie?  Not that I’m complaining 🙂 But glad I had 2 pie crusts ready. Thnx!!

    One of the best looking pies I have seen in a while. Cheers.

  17. Julia @ Sprinkled With Jules — November 19, 2014 at 10:52 am

    Yum! I love apple and pecan pie, so putting them together is a great idea. I think there’s a typo in the Step 4 photo, it says “butmet” and I’m assuming it’s supposed to be “nutmeg”? 🙂

      Thanks for catching my typo, Julia! 🙂

    I mean what are the holidays without pie?!  And this one combines two of my favorites so you knocked it out of the park!  Love the step by step photos as well…pie can be kind of intimidating!
