Sex on a Plate Apple Pie

I know with a name like that you just had to take a peek, right?  The more traditional name for this is Amish Sour Cream Apple Pie, which is just as long but not as fun as Sex on a Plate.  A more PG version of the name, Dirty Word Pie, was created by a friend of mine with kids.  The original recipe was my mom's, I'm not entirely sure where she got it from.  But I took it and adapted it into something that was my own.  This pie is probably the thing that I get the most requests for every Thanksgiving.  I've even had a few friends who got this instead of a cake from me for their birthdays! 

If you don't like apple peels, feel free to take them off.  I leave them on because they add more fiber and vitamins, plus it takes a little less time to make the pie.  It'll take two small - medium Braeburns, or three big ones if you're doubling the recipe (which I highly recommend!!).  Of course you can use any type of apple you like, I think my mom's recipe used half regular Red Delious and half Granny Smith.  For the topping part, depending on how soft your butter is, you may need to add a little extra flour to get it to the crumbly texture you're looking for.


    For the pie:
    1 cup fat free sour cream
    1 egg
    1/2 cup sugar
    2 tablespoons flour
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 1/2 cup diced and peeled apples (I like braeburn)
    1 unbaked 9" deep dish pie crust

    For the topping:
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup flour
    2 tablespoons butter
    1 teaspoon cinnamon


    Preheat oven at 400. Mix together the sour cream, eggs, sugar, two tablespoons flour and vanilla. Add in apples and pour into pie crust. Bake for 25 minutes. While that's baking, combine the brown sugar, flour, butter and cinnamon until crumbly. Sprinkle on top of pie and return to oven for another 20 minutes.
