After my Cafe Zupas post yesterday, I had to come back and re-post my favorite Apple Pie recipe!!  I’ve actually been making this pie for years – and if you know me, you know that if I make a recipe more than once, it’s a winner!  This is by far my favorite apple pie.   I actually had a neighbor bring by a bag of apples from her tree, and this is the first thing that came to my mind.

I’m a sucker for a crumb topping, and it’s usually the more the better for me.  I’ve actually doubled the topping from the original recipe, and I think it’s the perfect amount of crumble.  And don’t let the sour cream part scare you away – it definitely adds to the pie!

Now that fall is fully upon us, I am craving pie like crazy, so stay tuned for many more!

    I love sour cream apple pie too. I'm going to try your delicious sounding recipe but use reduced-fat sour cream instead of regular…

    I've been wanting to make a sour cream apple pie for some time now but haven't yet! Saving this recipe as it looks amazing.

    I’m trying this tempting sour cream apple pie recipe, as I type, for Thanksgiving. I bumped up most of the ingredients for a deep 10″ pie dish. Once I get everything out, it’s just as easy to make a bigger pie, and then…more leftovers! I used 6 cups apples, 1- 1/3 cup sour cream, 3 T flour, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, 1 egg, but the same amount of sugar for the filling and the topping as my husband has diabetic/low sugar needs. Topping: 1 C flour, 2/3 C sugar (next time might use Splenda), 2 heaping tsp. cinnamon, and 6 T. margarine. I goofed and put the topping on after the first 15 minutes bake time @ 400 degrees F. I think it’ll be fine. I also use the Pampered Chef crust/rim cover to protect the fluted edge. Looking forward to a steamy apple pie!
