1 mrs. smith’s deep dish apple pie
1/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup pecans, chopped and toasted
Open hole on top of pie and cut 4 – 6 additional slits. Bake pie as directed on box and let it cool for 1 hour.
In a saucepan over medium heat, bring butter, brown sugar and whipping cream to a boil, stirring often. Boil one minute and remove from heat. Whisk in vanilla and powdered sugar until smooth.
Pour slowly over pie, spreading to cover. Top with pecans.
Note: This makes more praline sauce than can fit on the top of pie, so have extra pecans ready to stir in left over sauce. Place extra pralines on wax paper.
