If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch,you must first create the universe.
-- Carl Sagan
Well I did what I could. And it was deeeeeeelicious!
Fall has been making more of an effort lately, and it hasn't gone unappreciated around here.
Also, BATS! In my HOUSE! I got the idea from here.
Sour Cream Apple Pie
from Posie Gets Cozy
3 T. unsalted butter, softened
1/4 c. plus 2 T. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
2 T. flour
1 1/3 c. sour cream
2/3 c. sugar
1/4 t. salt
2 t. vanilla
2 large eggs
3 T. all-purpose flour
4-5 large granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
Pie crust (I used a pre-made one from the refrigerator section of the grocery store--it was just fine!), fitted into a 9" pie plate
To make the topping, in a bowl blend the butter, sugar, cinnamon, and flour until the mixture is combined well. Cover and chill the topping.
To make the filling, whisk together the sour cream, sugar, salt, vanilla, eggs, and flour until the mixture is smooth. Add the apples and stir together.
Spoon the filling into the pie shell and crumble the topping evenly over it. Bake the pie on a baking sheet in a 350 degree oven, 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Transfer to a rack and let cool completely.
