How to make it

  • 1 large pie pan
  • line the bottom with 1/4c. brown sugar and 1/2 stick of butter dabbed on the brown sugar cover with pecans as many as you like decorate with them do as you please..
  • 2. Roll out the thawed "room temp" pie shell just a tad larger then it already is as to cover the larger of the pie pans.
  • 3. place 1 rolled out pie shell on top of the pecans, butter, brown sugar layer
  • 4. in a large mixing bowl combine the water, apples, brown sugar, butter tapioca beads, cinnamon a must.. the other spices are up to you....let stand 10min
  • 5.pour apple mixture in the 1st pie shell and heap them if you didn't fry them as I do..
  • 6. take your last pie shell roll it out even larger then the last to cover the heap of apples. Fold under the edges and pinch off all the way around. With your hand or brush, brush on the evaporated milk then sprinkle the sugar over that.
  • 7. if you've ripped a couple holes in the pie shell dont worry , add a couple more to the top to let it vent as it cooks.
  • Bake at 325-350 for approx. 40min. Covering the pie edges with foil for the first 30min to keep them from burning.
  • After the pie comes out of the oven... place a plate of your choice over the top.. flip that baby upsidown "up side down" and let the pan set for a moment so it releases all the gooey substance. Do not let the pie cool before flipping or she's gonna stick to the pan ; ) Flip her while shes hot ladies n gents!!!!
  • The evaporated milk will not only make the crust flakey but will keep it firm and turns out a beautiful brown. Alot of people use milk..mama always said evaporated is the best!!!
  • Will post a pic in a couple weeks when I get ready to make this again..this was hard to explain since I dont have a recipe but only the one in my head. Enjoy yall!

    You have to love a mom who had more ways then one to substitute for flour! I dont use flour in any of my pies.. that Tapioca holds the flavors soooo well!! Hope u didn't use the big beads those remind me of fish eggs or big fish eyes LOL Glad yall love the recipe.. I'll be back soon with more recipes!! And noticing your tapioca flour..I guess tapioca flour can be used but your gonna use more to thicken.. and you wont have those little beads full of flavors. Good Luck with it though let me know what you think.

    This sounds awsome. I am not very good with deserts and i don't know why because I love sweets, but i need to start getting more involved in cooking desert. I will give this a try and please pray to god that i will not burn the cake because for some reason when it comes to deserts something terrible always go's wrong with me. I sometimes think that i was not ment to bake cakes (hahaha).
    Than's...=)cross your fingers..........
