Apple Praline Pie

Pastry to make one double pie crust


5 1/2 cups granny apples
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg


Praline mixture:
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 Tbsp. butter (no margarine)
1/3 cup ground pecans
Mix together and set aside.


Mix apples together with sugar, cornstarch and seasoning. 
Prebake pie crust for 8 min. - this prevents a soggy crust. 
Place half the apple mixture into the pie crust, add 1/2 praline mixture.
Top this with rest of apples and then the rest of the praline mixture. 
Cover with top crust.  
Brush top crust with a mixture of 1 egg yolk and 1 Tbsp. of water, 
you may not need all the mixture, this will create a lovely brown crust.
Bake in a pre-heated oven, 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
