Sour Cream Apple Pie is an unbelievable pie. I mean, seriously, Unbelievable!!! Trust me on this one. I’ve been making this pie for at least a decade, probably longer. My whole family loves, loves, loves this one.


Sour Cream Apple Pie


The filling doesn’t have any cinnamon or any other typical apple pie spices but doesn’t worry. The topping is where all the cinnamon is. The first time I made this pie I was tempted to spice up the filling. I have one thing to say about that, just don’t! In my ever so humble opinion, this pie is perfect just the way it is!

Okay, you’ll probably notice that I don’t include a crust recipe. This is for good reason. Making a pie crust makes me literally pull my hair out. When my darling son was about 7 years old and we were at the grocery store, he happens to see the prepared boxed pie crusts in the refrigerator section. His face lit up like a Christmas tree, he picks up the box and yelled, oh yes, yelled, “Hey mama, I found something that’s gonna help you from screaming every time you make a pie!” I kid you not! After I recovered from my mortification, at being a crust failure and publicly being called out for it, I embraced that dog gone boxed pie crust. That is what I gratefully used in this recipe.
