Spread evenly over bottom.
Prepare a 2 crust pie dough recipe, roll a single crust and lay over the top of the brown sugar mixture.
In a large bowl combine:
6 c. sliced, peeled apples
1/4 c. white sugar
2 T. flour
cinnamon and nutmeg to taste
Pour into pie shell, top with second crust and flute edges, slit vents in top.
Bake at 375 degrees for 40 – 50 minutes. cool pie for 5 – 10 minutes.
Invert on serving plate, serve upside down. Elegant!
**Pie Notes: The oddness of this pie instantly made me like it, and the circus of flipping it and seeing everyone’s faces at a de-panned pie with nuts and caramel oozing all over it, was exciting too! But the flavor was absolutely incredible! I love this pie, I have made it a number of times since.
The only change I made in the recipe was switching corn starch for flour, which I always feel is superior.
