1 package pie crust or Basic Pie Dough recipe
3/4 pounds apples, pared, cored, and sliced thinly
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup seedless raisins
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Hard Sauce
1/2 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon boiling water
1 teaspoon brandy

Line 9-inch pie plate with half of pastry; fill with apples and sprinkle with lemon juice and raisins. Combine the cinnamon, nutmeg and white sugar in small bowl; sprinkle over the apples.
Blend the brown sugar, flour and butter in a small bowl until crumbs form. Mix in pecans; sprinkle over filling.
Cover pie with rest of pastry, crimp edge to seal.

Bake for 50 minutes at 350. Remove from oven and top while still hot with hard sauce so the sauce melts down into the pie.

Hard Sauce:
Beat butter and sugar; add boiling water; beat in brandy.

Personal Notes:
One of our favorite summer hang-outs was Glorieta, New Mexico. Every summer Mom and Dad would take a group of BSU (Baptist Student Union) students to this camp. The Pink Adobe restaurant in Santa Fe was a favorite place to eat. This is the recipe of their famous apple pie.
