  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Press the pie crust into and up the sides of a 9 inch pie plate.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together 3/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons of flour, and salt. Mix in the sour cream, egg and vanilla until smooth. Add apples, and stir to coat. Scrape the mixture into the pie shell.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, then reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and continue baking for 30 minutes more.
  4. While the pie is baking, prepare the topping in a medium bowl. Stir together 1/3 cup of flour, 1/3 cup sugar, and cinnamon. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  5. After the 30 minute bake time has passed, cover the top of the pie with the crumb topping, and continue to bake for 15 minutes, or until topping is lightly browned and apples are tender. Allow the pie to cool, then refrigerate until chilled before serving.

I made this pie for the second time yesterday. It was a hit last night for dessert, and even better chilled this am at the church pot luck lunch. Both times I've made it, I wanted two pies (th...

This was a yummy pie! While making it I realized the container I had in the fridge was plain yogurt, not sour cream! I used the yogurt, and the pie still turned out delicious! I ended up baking ...

This is such a great pie recipe. My only problem is that it disappears before I get to eat my share! A couple of calories and fat can be trimmed with reduced fat sour cream. Like many others,...

This was very good. A bit sweet for us, so I'll just reduce the sugar next time. Also, I baked it much longer (almost 45 minutes) to get the apples really tender. I don't like them at all fir...

This is good stuff! One of the easiest recipe I ever made... But I think have to increase the flour to maybe 3/4 cup for it to resemble fine crumbs. Otherwise, it is great!

Nice recipe, but to sweet for my taste. The crumb topping would be nice with some added nuts. I made extra to fill a deep dish. Very rich pie. Sweezing the cumbs tight together and then brea...

I have made dozens of apple pies and this is the most memorable by far. I used the $2000 Pie Crust recipe from this site for the bottom. It was the first tim I've tried a crust with an egg (I us...
