"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

1 pie crust
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tbs flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
6 cups thinly sliced apples
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping

Crumb topping:
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup butter

In a large mixing bowl, stir together sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Add apples and gently toss. Transfer this mixture into a ready to bake pie crust.
Crumb topping: Stir together all the dry ingredients and then using a pastry blender, cut in the butter. Sprinkle over the apples in the pie crust. To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake in a 375 oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil and then bake for another 25-30 minutes more until the top is golden. Remove from oven and sprinkle pecans on top. Then drizzle with caramel topping. Cool on a wire rack.
