Use the bottom of a measuring cup or glass to press the crumbs down into the bottom and up the sides of the pan.

Place crust in oven and bake about 5-10 minutes, or until the crust is slightly browned. Remove and cool.

Apple Pie Filling Directions:

Heat oven to 325°F.

In a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice and vanilla. In a second bowl, combine sugars, cinnamon and gluten-free flour. Add to apple mixture and toss well to coat.

Spoon apple filling mixture into the nut crust. Drizzle lightly with butter.

Topping and Cooking Directions:

In a small bowl, combine the flour, pecans and sugar. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over filling.
