1 Prepared 9-inch Pie Dough (homemade or store-bought is fine)
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 brown sugar
1/2 cup of butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup granulated sugar
3 Tbsp corn starch
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
8 ounces sour cream
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 pounds Granny Smith or Golden Delicious Apples (about 7-8 apples), peeled, cored, and sliced into 1/4-inch wedges
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Roll out pie dough and line 9-inch pie plate. Freeze for at 15-20 minutes to firm dough.
3. Prepare crumb topping by combining sugars, cinnamon, flour and salt. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter or two knives until mixture resembles large peas. With hands, press topping together to form large clumps. Refrigerate until ready to use.
4. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and salt. Add apples and toss to evenly combine.
5. Add sour cream and vanilla to apple mixture and toss well to coat evenly.
6. Spoon apple mixture into chilled crust.
7. Sprinkle top of apple mixture with crumb topping.
8. Place pie on foil-lined baking sheet to catch and overflow during baking. Bake pie for 1 hour. Then, turn oven down to 350 degrees and bake for another 35-45 minutes or until the filling in the center is bubbling. If needed, you can loosely cover pie with aluminum foil towards the end of cooking to prevent over browning.
