Sour Cream Apple Pie

Since one person asked, I thought I’d share my grandmother’s recipe for Sour Cream Apple Pie.  I’m making one of these tomorrow and can’t wait (I like to lick the bowl after I make the sour cream mixture.  This is why I’m fat.) I don’t think I’ve ever had one made BY my grandmother but it is from the recipe box and it’s just delicious.  You should probably add it to your menu.


2 eggs

1 cup sour cream

1 cup sugar

6 Tbsp flour, divided

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 tsp salt

3 cups chopped peeled cooking apples

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

3 Tbsp cold butter or margarine

1 pie crust—8 to 10 inches


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs.  Add the sour cream.  Stir in the sugar, 2 Tbsp of the flour, vanilla, and salt—mix well.  Stir in the apples.  Pour into a pie crust.  Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. 

Meanwhile, make the topping: combine brown sugar and the remaining 4 Tbsp of flour; cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.  Sprinkle over the top of the pie.  Return to the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the filling is set. 

Cool completely on a wire rack.  Serve right away,  or cover and refrigerate.

Not pretty, but delicious!
