The best ever apple pie

The best ever apple pie

It's almost like I make my way through the meal just to get to this dessert!  It's that amazing!  It was always on every Holiday table we had and the recipe has been passed down to me and now I pass it on to you!  


Spray pie dish with cooking spray to prevent sticking

Add 1 bottom pie shell (I like Pillsbury roll out ones from the refrigerator section)

FILLING: (mix together in one large bowl and spread out evenly in pie shell)

2/3 Cup of Brown Sugar

1/4 Tsp each of Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Salt

1 Tbsp of Cornstarch

5 Cups of Peeled, Sliced GRANNY SMITH apples (about 6 or 7)

Once the above ingredients have been mixed together and put into pie shell...

Cover the top with 1 cup of Sour Cream, try to spread out evenly

CRUMB TOPPING: - use fingers to crumble together

In medium bowl combine

1 Cup of Flour

6 Tbsp of White Sugar

6 Tbsp of Brown Sugar

1 Tsp of Salt

1/2 Cup (1 stick) of Soft Butter (not melted! - you need it to hold a form)

Using your hand, mix the above ingredients together until it forms "crumbles"

Sprinkle on top of filling, evenly covering the top of the pie - this replaces the need for a top pie crust

Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, cover crust with foil or pie shields to prevent burning, reduce heat to 350 and continue to cook until apples start to bubble.  Let stand at least 20-30 minutes.  

What's a pie guard?  You can buy disposable ones at places like Walmart or you can buy re-usable ones at kitchen stores or walmart.

 Disposable - Found at Walmart

 Reusable - Found on Amazon

Or you can trace the circle of your pie dish on tin foil before you start and cut out your own!
