Improv Cooking Challenge: Sour Cream Apple Pie recipe

This month's challenge at Improv Cooking was "Apples and Cinnamon".  What a perfect use for those apples I brought back from Minnesota!


2 Tablespoon flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 egg, unbeaten
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups diced tart apples
1 - 9 inch deep dish pie pastry

Crumb topping mixture:
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup flour
1/4 cup butter

Sift together flour, sugar, and salt. 

Add unbeaten egg, sour cream, vanilla, and nutmeg, and beat to a smooth thin bat¬ter.  Stir in diced apples and pour into pie pastry. 

Bake in 400 oven for 15 minutes, then reduce temperature to 300 for 30 minutes.  

While baking, mix together all ingredients for crumb topping.   Remove from oven and top with crumb mix.   Return to oven for 10 minutes.


  1. Yummy. So many recipes waiting to be tried. Even still this one is going on the list.

  2. ah, memories! My aunt used to make sour cream apple pies every Thanksgiving -- so delicious. Yours looks beautiful, Teri!
