Place apples in large bowl. Add granulated sugar, tapioca and 1 tsp. apple pie spice; mix lightly. Let stand 15 min.
Meanwhile, combine flour, brown sugar, butter, nuts and remaining apple pie spice in separate bowl. Press 2/3 of the flour mixture onto bottom and halfway up side of 10-inch springform pan. Bake 10 min. or until lightly browned. Cool slightly.

Bake 1 hour 10 min. or until top is golden brown and apple mixture is hot and bubbly. Cool 20 min. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; remove rim. Serve cake warm or cooled.
You'll know it is a special occasion when the aroma from this special treat fills the house.
If you don't have a 10-inch springform pan, line a 9-inch square baking pan with heavy-duty foil. Prepare, bake and cool cake as directed. Use foil handles to lift cake from pan before cutting to serve.
Substitute ground cinnamon for the apple pie spice.
Serve topped with thawed COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping.
Prepare using any other kind of baking apple, such as Pink Lady or Golden Delicious. Or, try a combination of these apple varieties.
