HOW TO MAKE APPLE PECAN PIE

MAKE PIE CRUST:

STEP 1: Put flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor.

STEP 2: Add the COLD butter and COLD vegetable shortening. Cut cold butter into 18 pieces. Pulse until mixture becomes coarse, about 10-12 pulses.

STEP 3: Sprinkle 1/3 cup of COLD water over the mixture and pulse until the dough starts to come together, about 8-10 pulses. If the mixture seems dry, add more water about 1 teaspoon. DO NOT OVER PULSE THE DOUGH!

STEP 4: Turn the dough out onto a clean work surface, and gather it into a circle and flatten slightly. Divide dough in half.

STEP 5: Wrap pie crust doughs in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 3 days. You can also freeze it for up to 2 weeks.

STEP 6: On a lightly floured surface with a lightly floured rolling pin, roll the dough into 12 inch circle; about 1/8-inch thick.

STEP 7: Carefully place pie crust dough onto a 9-inch pie plate. Gently press the pie dough down so that it lines the bottom and sides of the pie plate. Use a pair of kitchen scissors to trim the dough to within 1/2 inch of the edge of the pie dish.

STEP 8: Preheat oven to 375F degrees.

MAKE CRUMBLE TOPPING:

STEP 1: In a small bowl, using a fork, mix together brown sugar, butter, flour, cinnamon, and chopped pecans until crumbly. Set aside.

MAKE APPLE PECAN FILLING:

  6. 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!

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

  8. 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!!

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