Favorite Sour Cream Apple Pie (circa 1992)

Creamy, tender apples baked under a thin, crackly cinnamon-sugar
topping, it's no wonder this recipe is still popular today as
it was when first published in "Gourmet Magazine"
over 20 years ago. 

And it slices so beautifully, thanks to the sour cream
custard filling.  It's easy to make too as it only
requires a bottom crust (and if you're short on
time refrigerated or frozen pie crust pastry will do.)

The original recipe suggested serving each slice
with a dollop of ginger flavored whipped cream,
but I've never made it that way. I prefer a slightly
sweetened dollop of freshly whipped cream, or a
scoop of good quality vanilla or cinnamon ice cream.

It's a wonderful way to send 2012 out
on a sweet note. If you try it, I hope it will become
one of your favorites too!

Happy New Year, friends!!
