Brown sugar and pecans make the crust special. After baking, the pie gets a twist: it's turned upside down onto the serving plate, transforming the sticky bottom crust into a moist, nutty topping.

This was very good! Next time I'll up the apples - perhaps 5 cups instead of 4. Loved the flavors - as did the guests. I would also like to try it with homemade crust. Read More

This pie was wonderful!!! I have to admit, I was a bit nervous when I was spreading the butter/brown sugar/syrup mixture in the bottom of the pie plate that it was going to stick and be a terrible mess. After it came out of the oven, I couldn't figure out how to run my knife around the crust without breaking it so I just flipped the pie and crossed my fingers! With a little tap to the bottom of the dish, the pie came out perfectly!! Did not stick at all! It was really tasty and my guests loved it. Will probably make this one again for Thanksgiving :) Read More

This recipe is absolutely fabulous! I didn't have any Karo syrup and used every day syrup. It was still awesome. Read More

Wonderful pie, easy to make. I also thought the glaze on bottom would stick, but when I took the pie out and used the knife to separate the edges it turned over perfectly. Read More
