Nothing is as homey as the smell of an apple pie baking and this Apple Walnut Upside-Down Pie looks and tastes like you have spent hours in the kitchen! Serve with steaming mugs of Nestlé Carnation hot cocoa for a great new family tradition.
- 2 packages (12-oz.) STOUFFER'S Harvest Apples, defrosted according to package directions

- 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/3 cup chopped walnuts

- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
PREHEAT oven to 375°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.

Review This Recipe
I have made this quick and "oh so easy pie" so much I have lost count. My family love it and it has such an elegant presentation I serve it to company all the time. I have friends and family asking me to make it when I invite them over for dinner. I serve it warm with vanilla ice cream but have found that the next day I actually like it best. We have family fueds over who gets the leftover pieces. I strongly recommend this recipe. It is and will always be a favorite in our home.
