Sour Cream Apple Pie

Now that Halloween is out of the way, and November is HERE, I'm ready for Thanksgiving!!  Which means pie. . .and leftovers. . .and mashed potatoes!

But it's pie here today, and this pie is so yummy.  And not very pretty on a plate. . . but it's yummy!  The sour cream gives it a nice twist on your normal apple pie, and I love the topping.  It's perfect.  Finish it up with a nice spoonful of whipped cream, and you'll love it.

IMPORTANT!!  This pie has TWO cooking periods.  once, before the topping, and then after you add the topping you KEEP COOKING!! 

Posted at:
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 2-3 Tbsp flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 Tsp cinnamon
  • 3 cups peeled, sliced tart apples (it ended up being about 4-5 apples for me)
  • pie crust for bottom of pie--FROZEN for at least 1/2 hour before cooking
Mix together the sour cream, sugar, flour, salt, vanilla, egg, and cinnamon.  Add the apples, and gently mix.  Add to an unbaked pie shell, and then bake in a 400deg preheated oven for 25 minutes.  After 25 minutes, take the pie out, and add the streusel topping.

  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup quick oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
Mix all the above together.  Hands work wonderful for this.  Sprinkle over the pie.  Bake the pie at 400degs for another 20 minutes.

  1. Oh my gosh, you just made my day! About 7 years ago my husband and I (we were dating) went to this small breakfast cafe and had a slice of this. It was so good we bought the whole pie! Since then the cafe has gone out of business. We still talk about that pie regularly, it was that good. I will have to make this and see if it compares!


I love your comments!
