This was an excellent pie... different, but soooo good! Family ate it up! The sour cream mixture seems very runny when you pour it in the pie shell, but bakes up to have the texture and consistency of baked custard, but with a distinct sweet creamy taste. I used a deep-dish 9" pieplate, and was glad I did, as this made a big pie. I followed the recipe except for adding about 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans and an additional tablespoon of butter to the topping mixture. I used about 3 1/2 cups of chopped fuji apples, I did not have any pie apples on hand, I would recommend good tart pie apples for this recipe. I also put the pie back in the oven for an additional 10 minutes at 400 degrees to brown the topping some more, I imagine you could put the topping on at the start of baking, or at least for the last 30 minutes, to get it nice and crisp. I'll make this again!
