Happy National Dessert Day

This is far and away one of my first choices for dessert. The thick sweet, soft apple filling is an excellent contrast to the slightly sweet crumb topping that says “crunch” with every delicious mouthful. There’s no better way to celebrate National Dessert Day!

April’s Blue Ribbon Sour Cream Apple Pie
6 cups Braeburn apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1-9 inch ready-made unbaked pie crust
3/4 cup granulated white sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 400°F. Arrange apples in pie shell over bottom crust.

Mix granulated white sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg until well blended. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Spoon flour butter mixture over apples; spread sour cream over the top of apples.

Bake pie for 45 minutes, or until apples are tender. Serve at room temperature. Yield: 8 servings
