Apple Strips

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by sheepdoc

Bar-sized apple pie. When I make this recipe, I sub greek yogurt for the sour cream and add more than stated - until it is a good texture to roll. Also, I roll between 2 sheets of waxed paper, peel the top piece, lay back down, flip over, peel the other sheet and flip onto pan.

Nice recipe with potential, but I had difficulty with crust, it was dry. I could not roll it so used fingers to flatten. After making, looked at a similar recipe-old one of my mother's-- I would next time separate egg and put beaten yolk into dough, and if was still dry I would add milk. Wish I could suggest amount but her recipe does not use sour cream. I would brush beaten white onto top crust. Used parchment for bottom crust eliminating one transfer, and for the top crust knew that I could not transfer it neatly so squeezed dough between fingers and then applied it in sections. Thank you sheepdoc for sharing.
