Serves: 8
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 55 minutes


2 (12 oz.) packages STOUFFER'S® Harvest Apples, defrosted according to pkg directions
1 (9 inch) double pie crust
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup walnuts, chopped
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 tablespoons cinnamon, ground

PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees F.

BEAT butter and brown sugar in a medium mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Spread onto bottom of a 9-inch pie plate. Top with nuts. Top with one pastry, being careful not to make holes in pastry with nuts. Trim dough to make even with edge of pan.

COMBINE escalloped apples, granulated sugar, flour and cinnamon in a medium bowl; place over pastry. Place remaining pastry over apple mixture and trim even with edge of pan; prick top crust with the tines of a fork. Seal crust edges by rolling the edges toward center of pie. There should be no crust touching rim of pan.

BAKE for 50 to 55 minutes. Carefully run knife around edge of plate to loosen pie; invert onto serving plate. Let stand for 2 minutes; remove pan.
