Charlene’s Sour Cream Apple Pie
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 – 2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups apples, chopped into pieces
1 unbaked bottom pie crust
For the pie:
Mix together sour cream, sugar, egg, flour, salt, and vanilla and beat until a little frothy. Place apples in pie crust and pour custard mix over the top. Bake in a pre-heated 350º F oven for 25 min.
For the topping:
While the pie is cooking, mix up topping in a bowl: Cut one half stick of butter into 1/3 cup flour and 1/2 cup brown sugar. If you like, you may also mix in 1/2 cup rolled oats.
Take the pie out of the oven and set it on the stove top. Cover the top of the pie with brown sugar topping and put it back in the oven to bake for another 20 to 25 minutes until the custard is firm and the topping is crusty. You can eat this stuff hot with ice cream or whipped cream, or you can wait until it cools down. No matter how you decide to eat it, though, you are going to love this pie. In the unlikely event that you have any left, it’ll still be fantastic the following day.
From Beth Hatch, Executive Assistant, and Coordinator, Regional Outreach Training Center, WEI, who says of this pie: “It’s my mom’s recipe. We eat it a lot during apple season.”
