pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
I make this all the time and it always turns out GREAT. I change it a bit though; I reduce the Sour cream by 2 tablespoons, use 2 large or even 3 medium size apples, used 1/4 cup brown sugar, and reduced the butter in the struesal to two heaping tablespoons. I also add a little brown sugar to the top of it. To keep the crust from burning, I wrap the pie loosely in foil, cutting open the top so steam can escape and the pie can bake evenly w/o a overly brown crust.
Ok recipe,but everything is just real sweet!
decent recipe,just need to play with it to reduce the sweetness level...
Use less sugar for the filling and only about half of the sugary topping and this pie will turn out great!! It is very easy to make and tastes delicious (looks great too!). I also used real vanilla bean instead of the vanilla extract.
excellent and delicious!!!!!! the sour cream filling made the difference in this delicious pie. i'm not that great of a baker, so i used a store bought, refridgerated pie dough, which made assembly a snap. the second time i made this i used 6 medium sized apples(2 different varieties for added interest) and the pie was a lot biger and still awesome. great recipe.
Wonderfully creamy and very delicious. Will definitely be making this often!
This was fabulous. Made it for coworkers at work and they raved. I will definitely make this again. I've shared the recipe with all my friends and coworkers.
I made this pie for the girls at work. The pie was tasteless but the topping went over very well. Everyone liked the topping but overall they didn't care for this recipe.
This was one of the best apple pies I've ever had. I had guests over and they loved it too. I used brown sugar in the topping and needed more flour so to spice the topping up, I added a bit of cinnamon. But otherwise perfect!
