My husband loves apple pie…I’d rather pass!  Every time I make it he insists I try a bite and taste how good it is.  For some reason I just don’t like it.  Then the other day I was browsing recipes and came across Upside Down Apple PieI was excited that I had all the ingredients on hand so I whipped one up.  I must say, it’s quite delicious!  I did change it a little, but the concept is the same.  It’s very simple to put together and it looks beautiful too….enjoy!

Ingredients are as follows:

6 Tbsp. butter, melted
3/4 C brown sugar
1/2 C chopped pecans (or walnuts)

1/2 C sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
6 apples, peeled, cored and sliced

1 package refrigerated pie crusts


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a cookie sheet on the second rack to catch the drips if it bubbles over!

Line a 10″ pie plate with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Mix together the melted butter, brown sugar and pecans; spread into pan.


Place one of the crusts on top and press down into the pan; set aside.

Stir the sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and butter together; mix in the apples.

Evenly spread into the pie crust.

Place the other crust on top and crimp the edges so it’s sealed; cut a slit on top.

Bake for 60-75 minutes; until golden brown.

Invert pie onto a serving plate (my pie plate is glass so it’s hard to see!).

Carefully remove the pie plate and slowly peel off the foil.


Slice, serve and enjoy!
