Karen Baldwin

This is my recipe, which i got from my mom, which she got from *her* mom,
which she got from her mom. (my Nonnie). My grandfather, a Norwegian
immigrant, planted an Apple Orchard when he was a young man, and the family
ran its 200 acres as a business (as my cousins continue to, today). Apples
were always on the table and in our meals, and baking was done for customers
as well as for pleasure. Contests were entered regularly, recipe books
written, etc. And THIS recipe was our whole family's favorite, which ought
to tell you something. Keeps winning those pie contents!


3 c. apples (cored, peeled, each segment cut into 3 pieces)
3 T. flour
2/3 c. sugar (white)
1/8 tsp. salt
1 egg
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. sour cream

Topping:
1/3 c. flour
1/2 c. cold butter
1/3 c. sugar (1/2 white; 1/2 brown)
1 tsp. cinnamon

Mix together the flour, sugar, and salt, and coat the
apples in it all. Beat together the egg and vanilla,
and add to the apple mix. Fold in the sour cream.
Bake in a 9" pie shell for 40 min. at 350 degrees.

Mix the topping while the pie bakes, by cutting the
cold butter into the flour, sugar, and cinnamon until
the texture is crumbly. (You can use all white sugar,
but a little brown sugar makes it more attractive. You
can use all brown sugar, but it overwhelms the
delicate flavors of the filling.) Cover the
baked pie with this topping and bake an additional
10-15 minutes.
