I don’t make pretty pies, as evidenced by this picture:
But, it was tasty! My theory is pie gets all mixed up when you try to slice it, especially fruit pies. So as long as it tastes good, your mission is accomplished. (Also, I’m not very good at crusts, so that’s probably the problem.)
I got this recipe from Taste of Home, and it’s by far my favorite apple pie recipe.
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
* Pinch salt
* 1 egg, beaten
* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 cup sour cream
* 2 cups chopped peeled tart apples
* 1 unbaked pie shell (9 inches)
* 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
* 2 tablespoons cold butter
* In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour and salt. Stir in the egg, vanilla and sour cream; stir until smooth. Add apples; mix well. Pour into pie crust. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 325° and bake for 30 minutes more.
* For topping, combine flour and sugar in a small bowl. Cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle topping over pie; bake 20 minutes longer or until filling is bubbly and topping is browned. Cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or chilled. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 8 servings.
I brought this pie to our Easter dinner yesterday with my husband’s family. We cleaned up nice, I think!
Happy Easter – He is risen!
