Apple pie with sour cream goodness

This recipe came from my wife's boss, Dick Dolan, the editor of the Hewlett Packard Journal. It is sinfully delicious and never lasts very long, even if you don't have help eating it!


(Makes 2 pies)




  1. Preheat the oven to In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour, sour cream, eggs, and vanilla into a smooth mixture.
  2. Core, peel, and chop the apples. Boil them in a small amount of water with a little lemon juice for 3 to 5 minutes until they begin to get tender.
  3. Drain apples and add to the mixture.
  4. Pour into two 9-inch pastry shells.
  5. Bake at for 30 minutes.
  6. While pies are baking, crumble topping ingredients into a bowl and mix with a pastry cutter or two knives.
  7. Remove pies from oven and cover with topping recipe.
  8. Put pies under broiler for 1 to 2 minutes until the topping begins to bubble.


Don't take your eyes off the pies while they're under the broiler. A moment's inattention can mean burned pie!

If there is any pie left over, the remainder should be refrigerated.


Difficulty: moderate.
Time: 20 minutes preparation, 30 minutes baking.
Precision: measure the ingredients.
