In a small bowl, combine 6 T. butter, the brown sugar and pecans; mix well and spread evenly over the bottom of the pie plate. Unfold 1 pie crust and place it in the pie plate pressing the crust firmly against the nut mixture and the side of the plate;set aside.
In a large bowl combine the granulated sugar, flour and cinnamon, mix well. Add the apples and toss gently to coat. Spoon into the pie crust and drizzle with the remaining 2 T. butter.
