directions

  • For crust: Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt in medium bowl. Cut in cold butter using pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add water and toss mixture gently with a fork until evenly moistened. Gather gently into ball.
  • Transfer to lightly floured board and roll into circle slightly larger than a deep 10-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into pan and flute a high edge. Set aside.
  • For filling: Preheat oven to 450*F. Combine apples, sour cream, sugar, flour, egg, vanilla and salt in large bowl and mix well. Spoon into crust. Bake 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350*F and continue baking until filling is slightly puffed and golden brown, about 40 minutes. (If edges of crust begin to brown too quickly, cover with strips of aluminum foil.).
  • For topping: Meanwhile, combine walnuts, flour, sugars, cinnamon and salt in medium bowl and mix well. Blend in butter until mixture is crumbly. Spoon over pie and bake 15 minutes longer.

I am now semi-retired and an Empty Nester. I try to focus on lighter dishes for day to day menus. I still like to explore new food ideas. I look for smaller quantity dishes now. I am not vegetarian but I cook with more vegetables than meat now. I enjoy sharing desserts with family and my co-workers.
