Pastry for one-crust 9-inch pie
6 Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground mace
Crumb Topping:
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 9-inch pie pan with pastry, trimming edges.
2. In large bowl, combine apples, pecans, sugar, flour, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger and mace; toss well to blend. Transfer apple mixture to pastry-lined pan.
3. For Crumb Topping: In small bowl, combine flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. With pastry blender or fork, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Spread evenly over apple filling.
4. Bake pie 45 minutes or until apples are tender.

Pecans add a little crunch to the classic apple pie filling, flavored with creamy-tasting mace, the outer shell of nutmeg.
