This is so delicious ~ Actually it's a Martha Washington recipe, President George Washigton's favorite pie, ~ it's over 200 yrs old with new modifications ~ I've made this several times and never left overs


Preheat oven 400


2 Tablespoons flour (sifted)
1/8 teaspoon salt (little less is optional, can eliminate salt)
cup sugar
1 egg (can use just white or egg substitute)
1 cup sour cream (*optional: fat free or light)
1 teaspoon vanilla
teaspoon nutmeg (little more is optional)
teaspoon cardamom (*optional)
4 apples peeled, cored, and sliced-then cut in half (chunks): gala apples best
9 inch pastry pie shell: use Pastry for One-Crust Pie recipe


1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
cup shortening / margarine **please use little less than cup, add little in at a time, until you have the right
consistency- you will not use all of cup of shortening / margarine.

Step 1

In a large bowl, sift together the: flour, salt, and sugar.

Step 2

Add the egg, (or egg white, or egg substitute) vanilla, and nutmeg.

Step 3

Beat to a smooth, thin batter. Stir in the apples. Pour into the pastry shell and bake for 15 minutes.

Step 4

Reduce the oven temperature to 350 and bake for 30 minutes.

Step 5

Prepare the Crumb Topping. In a small bowl, add the sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Add the shortening / margarine, a little at a time, until the right consistency, will not use all f cup of shortening / margarine. Use a fork when adding in the shortening / margarine. The Crumb Topping should resemble small peas and slightly powdery -once it looks like this STOP! adding the shortening / margarine into mixture.

Step 6

After Sour Cream Apple Pie has cooked for 30 minutes at 350, take out of oven and place on trivet.

Step 7

Right away sprinkle Crumb Topping over the pie. Increase oven temperature to 400, place Sour Cream Apple Pie back in oven and bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
