7 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apple (about 8 medium)
1 cup sugar
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
3 tablespoons apple cider
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon half-and-half cream
2 tablespoons apple cider
1/2 cup chopped pecans
In a large bowl, combine the apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Line pie plate with bottom crust; brush well with apple cider. Add apple mixture; pour any remaining cider over all. Drizzle with butter. Top with second crust; flute edges to seal. Cut slits in top. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes.
For topping, melt butter in a small saucepan. Add the brown sugar, cider and cream. Bring to a full rolling boil over low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and stir in pecans.
Remove pie from oven (leave oven on) and place on a baking sheet. Slowly pour topping over pie. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until topping bubbles. Cool on a wire rack for at least 1 hour before serving.
