True confession: I have never made a pie in my life.
But. My mom has. And she passed this recipe down to my best friend in high school.
Last weekend all my best buds from high school got together for a girl’s weekend. And Heather baked The Pie.
That’s the pie baker on the bottom left. And me on the upper right, but you probably knew that.
Sour Cream Apple Pie
- 1 cup sour cream
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg
- 3 cups peeled, sliced tart apples (about 1 1/4 pounds of slices)
- 1 9″ unbaked pie shell, frozen or chilled in the freezer for at least 30 minutes
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1/4 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Mix together sour cream, sugar, flour, salt, vanilla and egg. Add apples, mixing carefully to coat well.
Put filling into a pie shell and bake at 400 degrees initially for 25 min.
Mix together all ingredients for the topping until the mixture resembes coarse crumbs. Remove the pie from oven and sprinkle with Cinnamon Crumb Topping. Bake for an additional 20 minutes.
Let cool for a hour before serving.
Eat. Preferably with friends.
