Prepare pastry for single crust pie. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to a 12" circle. Transfer pastry to a 9" pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate, being careful not to stretch pastry. Trim; crimp edge as desired. For Crumb Topping, stir together brown sugar, 1/2 C. all-purpose flour, and the oats. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until the topping mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl stir together the sugar, 3 Tbs. flour, cinnamon, and salt. Add apple slices and gently toss until coated. Transfer apple mixture to the pastry-lined pie plate. Sprinkle Crumb Topping over apple mixture. To prevent over-browning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake in a 375°F oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 25-30 minutes more or until top is golden. Remove from oven; sprinkle pie with pecans, then drizzle with caramel topping. Cool on a wire rack. Pastry for Single-Crust Pie: In a bowl stir together all-purpose flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until pieces are pea-size.
