Ingredients

Ingredients:

1 Prepared 9-inch Pie Dough (homemade or store-bought is fine)

Crumb Topping:

- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 brown sugar
- 1/2 cup of butter
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt

Filling:
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 3 Tbsp corn starch
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
- 8 ounces sour cream
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 3 pounds Granny Smith or Golden Delicious Apples (about 7-8 apples), peeled, cored, and sliced into 1/4-inch wedges

Directions

Pie Crust

Homemade or store-bought crust will work for this recipe. I typically buy a prepared crust simply to save time.

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Roll out pie dough and line 9-inch pie plate. Freeze for at 15-20 minutes to firm dough.

Crumb Topping

3. Prepare crumb topping by combining sugars, cinnamon, flour and salt. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter or two knives until mixture resembles large peas. With hands, press topping together to form large clumps. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Pie Filling

4a. Peel, core, and slice apples into 1/4-inch wedges.

4b. 4. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and salt. Add apples and toss to evenly combine.

5. Add sour cream and vanilla to apple mixture and toss well to coat evenly.

Baking

6. Spoon apple mixture into chilled crust.

7. Sprinkle top of apple mixture with crumb topping.

8. Place pie on foil-lined baking sheet to catch and overflow during baking. Bake pie for 1 hour. Then, turn oven down to 350 degrees and bake for another 35-45 minutes or until the filling in the center is bubbling.

If needed, you can loosely cover pie with aluminum foil towards the end of cooking to prevent over browning.

Apple Shopping Tip

When buying apples, they should be firm, free of bruises, and heavy for their size.

Apple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
