Upside-Down Apple Pecan Pie
This is one of my favorite ways to make apple pie!!
I found this recipe in a little Pillsbury “pie” cookbook years ago, it’s listed on their site as a “Bake Off” WINNER in 1951!
It’s a self-glazing apple pie that tastes as wonderful as it looks!!!
And it’s easy too!
Grab your apron!
