❤️WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

We love the topping on this delicious apple pie! it’s so easy to make but adds such a wonderful flavor. Many people love a streusel topping and this is our favorite. We also love the addition of the sour cream. You would never know it’s made with sour cream but it gives it a great flavor.

🍴KEY INGREDIENTS

  • Sour cream
  • All-purpose flour
  • Sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • All spice
  • Salt
  • Vanilla
  • Egg
  • Apples
  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie shell or homemade crust.
  • Topping Ingredients:
  • Brown sugar
  • All-purpose flour

  • Chopped pecans

SWAPS

You can switch out the vanilla for another extract and use just about any apples you like. If you are not a fan of pecans, you can use walnuts or leave the nuts out all together.

🍽️HOW TO MAKE

The hardest part about this recipe is cutting up the apples or making a homemade pie crust. If you use a store-bought, it does save time.

COOKING STEPS

Step 1
Peel and chop up apples

Step 2
Preheat oven to 400. In a large bowl mix sour cream, flour, sugar, cinnamon, all spice, salt, vanilla and egg. Fold in apples and pour in pie pan.

Step 4
In a small bowl cut butter into flour and sugar.  I use a fork and just kind of mash it all up together.  Stir nuts in to the topping and sprinkle topping over the entire pie before baking. Bake on 400 for 15 minutes. Turn oven down to 350 and bake for another 45 minutes until pie tests done.

⭐TIP

I chop some extra pecans to put on top so that it looks better with the crumble. I also love this pie with ice cream or whipped cream! Both are delicious.
