  • 1 9-inch deep-dish pie crust unbaked


  • 1 2/3 cups sour cream
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 granny smith apples peeled and sliced


  • 1 cup walnuts chopped
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar firmly packed
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dried ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter cubed


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Prepare the filling. Combine all filling ingredients except apples in a large mixing bowl and stir until they are well mixed. Add apples and toss until filling is evenly distributed. Set aside.
  • Prepare the topping. Combine walnuts, flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl and mix well. Blend in butter until mixture is crumbly.
  • Assemble. Roll pie dough out and fit into a deep-dish 9-inch pie plate. Give the filling a quick stir then pour into crust. Top with crumble topping.
  • Place prepared pie on a cookie sheet and loosely cover with aluminum foil.
  • Bake in a preheated oven, loosely covered for about 1 hour. Uncover and continue to cook until about 10-15 minutes until the filling is set, slightly puffed and lightly golden.
