I entered this pie into a pie contest, never having made it before. I won First Prize over 30 other pies! A shock, because there were many pies that were more beautiful and elaborate, but the judges raved about the flavor and the texture of the surprise sour cream filling. This is why I LOVE Allrecipe reviews! I can never lose when I look for the highly rated recipes!
DON'T EAT THIS WARM!! Who doesn't love warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream? Well...this isn't the pie for that. It is ONLY good chilled and the next day. However, it is something different than the traditional apple pie. I liked it ok but I think I will keep trying different recipes. :)
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 (the pillsbury pre-packaged crusts at our grocery store come in packs of 2) This first time, I made one deep dish (in a nice ceramic pie plate), and another in a regular tin pie plate. Doubling the recipe gave barely enough filling. Yesterday, I used a triple recipe, and 2 nice ceramic dishes. I tripled the filling, and the topping ingredients. This resulted in 2 nice deep dish pies. I did cook the pies a little longer, just adding a couple of minutes to each step to be sure the deeper pies were thoroughly cooked. I found the recipe easy, and the end result simply perfect. Thanks!
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 it at least an extra half hour after the topping was on- because I was unsure about the yogurt, and the top wasn't browning. It didn't brown, just got crunchy, and the pie turned out great.
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, I reduced the sugar to one half cup, and added a sprinkle of nutmeg to the topping. Total baking time of one hour is needed....just follow the directions and add keep it in the oven for the extra time.
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 firm. A great change from regular apple pie -- definitely a keeper!
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 breaking them up over the apples helps to have a nice chunky appearance of the crumb topping.
