This is a creamy, one-crust apple pie with a crisp topping. Great for those cold, rainy November afternoons!

I make this all the time and it always turns out GREAT. I change it a bit though; I reduce the Sour cream by 2 tablespoons use 2 large or even 3 medium size apples used 1/4 cup brown sugar and reduced the butter in the struesal to two heaping tablespoons. I also add a little brown sugar to the top of it. To keep the crust from burning I wrap the pie loosely in foil cutting open the top so steam can escape and the pie can bake evenly w/o a overly brown crust. Read More

Use less sugar for the filling and only about half of the sugary topping and this pie will turn out great!! It is very easy to make and tastes delicious (looks great too!). I also used real vanilla bean instead of the vanilla extract. Read More

excellent and delicious!!!!!! the sour cream filling made the difference in this delicious pie. i'm not that great of a baker so i used a store bought refridgerated pie dough which made assembly a snap. the second time i made this i used 6 medium sized apples(2 different varieties for added interest) and the pie was a lot biger and still awesome. great recipe.

This was one of the best apple pies I've ever had. I had guests over and they loved it too. I used brown sugar in the topping and needed more flour so to spice the topping up I added a bit of cinnamon. But otherwise perfect! Read More

I made this pie for the girls at work. The pie was tasteless but the topping went over very well. Everyone liked the topping but overall they didn't care for this recipe. Read More

This Apple Pie was/is the only apple pie my husband will eat. He hates apple pie. Our friend made this for us when we went to her house for dinner. At first the sour cream seemed like a weird thing to put in apple pie but it made it so creamy and yummy. It is sweet but good. Not your traditional apple pie. I'm going to have to make it myself.
