I had a couple of red delicious apples that had gotten a bit mushy. Bought some gala apples on sale. So I got inspired to try this recipe from Alicia of Posie Gets Cozy. My version looks enough like hers that I think I did it right.
Unfortunately, instead of the one hour to 1 1/4 hours it was supposed to bake for, it was closer to two hours. My sister said the pie smelled delicious and was golden brown. I thought she turned off the oven. She hadn't. Still, it wasn't dried out or anything. The sugary top looks burnt but just tastes crunchy. The inside isn't the cinnamony carmelized consistency I generally think of and like about apple pie. It's good for a change of pace from traditional apple pie though.
Sour Cream Apple Pie
Adapted from Alicia of Posie Gets Cozy
For one deep-dish 10-inch pie, you'll need:
1 pie crust per my recipe for cherry pie or store-bought pie crust
About 2 to 2 1/2 lbs of apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
8-oz container sour cream
1/2 cup brown sugar, divided into half for filling and for topping
1/2 cup flour, divided into half for filling and for topping
2 tsp cinnamon, divided into half for filling and for topping
2 tblsp butter, melted
Make the pie crust and set aside.
Peel and slice the apples. Toss with 2 tblsp brown sugar, 2 tblsp flour, and 1 tsp cinnamon. Then mix with sour cream. Fill bottom of pie pan with the apple mixture.
In a bowl, add 2 tblsp brown sugar, 2 tblsp flour, 2 tblsp melted butter, and 1 tsp cinnamon. The mixture should be crumbly. Sprinkle on top of the pie. You can double this part if you want an extra sugary-cinnamony layer on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for an hour to an hour and a half until a knife inserted into center comes out clean.
