Sour Cream - Apple Bake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Cinda Lu

I received this recipe over 30 years ago from a friend at our church. It is so easy and quick to prepare. It is pretty and is tasty enough to serve guests or for a holiday get-together. The thing I like about it the most is that it is semi-homemade.

Cinda! This is a great recipe! It reminds me of a recipe that my mom used to make when I was a kid. My son and hubby devoured it! Thanks so much for posting. I will definitely be using this recipe again!!
