Why I Love This Recipe

Brown the topping for this special-occasion pie under the broiler to give it extra eye appeal. Watch it carefully, though, because you don't want to burn Thanksgiving dessert! It's a fitting finale for any festive meal.

Ingredients You'll Need

Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
6 cups chopped peeled tart apples (about 6 medium)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons sour cream
4 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cold butter


Line a 9-in. pie plate with pastry; flute edges.

In a large bowl, combine the apples, butter, sour cream, lemon juice, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Spoon into pastry shell.

For topping, combine flour and sugar in a bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over filling.

Bake at 375 for 45-50 minutes or until the filling is bubbly and the apples are tender.

Cool on a wire rack.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

I'm sure any plain pastry would work, including your recipe. Hope you enjoy it!

Mmmm this sounds really great :) What kind of pastry dough do you use? Is it like flour,butter,egg water dough? Or is it also spiced? I just love apple pies, but I have somehow never made the real american one yet... If you check out my Quiche Lorraine paistry dough, could I maybe use that one?
