Since apple season and the pecan harvest coincide, combine the two ingredients in a cinnamon-accented crisp. It smells heavenly while it bakes.
Make Ahead Tips
You can make and refrigerate the pecan topping topping up to 2 days ahead, or freeze for up to 2 months. Bring to room temperature before using.

Delicious! A perfect pairing of flavors. This was a huge hit with my large family. I used a mix of Gala and Granny Smith Apples which cut down on the tartness and I didn't bother to toast my pecans, but they toasted perfectly as the crisp cooked. I will definitely make this again and again!
Followed the recipe and made no changes. Came out very good, everyone enjoyed the orange zest, even though my husband suggested that I omit it. After tasting the dessert, he revised his opinion and agreed the orange zest added flavor to the final product. However I believe I will try it next time with different kinds of apples as the one of the reviewers did. It is a keeper.
Very good. I have made this twice. The first time I used all Granny Smith apples. Some of my taste testers thought it was too tart. The second time I used equal parts of Granny Smith, Galas, and Golden Delicious. This was preferred by my taste testers. Also, the second time I made it I did not toast the pecans prior to baking. They toasted to perfection as the apples cooked.
