My MIL's Famous Apple Pie

With my oldest son celebrating his birthday with a big sleepover with his buddies I didn't have a chance to try out the recipes that I was planning (a bunch of 10 year old boys would not appreciate a nice Greek quiche!). So instead I'm going to share with you one of our family favourites.

This is a wonderful sour cream apple pie that my Mother-in-law is famous for. Thanksgiving and Christmas wouldn't be the same without this dessert. :)

1 unbaked deep-dish pie shell
4-5 apples - peeled, cored and sliced
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp cinnamon sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp brown sugar
1/3 cup sour cream
2 tbsp milk
2 tbsp butter
Garnish cinnamon

Preheat oven to 425F.

Arrange apple slices in pie shell. Sprinkle apples with lemon juice and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon sugar.
Mix 1/3 cup of white sugar, flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon together and sprinkle over apples. Sprinkle 3 tbsp brown sugar over top. Mix sour cream with milk. Drizzle over top of apple mixture. Dot with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Does your MIL have any comments regarding the use of frozen, sliced but not cooked apples? I had too many after apple picking and have a freezer full ...

She always uses fresh apples in her pies. If you try using frozen let me know how it goes. You may find that you have more moisture in your pie and your bottom crust may be soggy. That's just a prediction of mine. If you bake your pie in a baking stone that should fix the problem (if it happens). :)
