I often brown the topping for this special-occasion pie under the broiler to give it extra eye appeal. Watch it carefully, though, because you don't want to burn Thanksgiving dessert! It's a fitting finale for any festive meal.

"Made for Thanksgiving 2016 when I realized I didn't have enough pastry for a double crust apple pie. Husband went crazy for this version! I loved the crumb topping. Two thumbs up, and a simple recipe to make. Followed directions, but used a orange versus a lemon as that's what I had on-hand."

"This recipe is so good that my husband keeps asking for it and my neighbor asked for the recipe. The best pie recipe! It's not too sweet and not too watery inside. Only drawback- the crumbs dont come out big enough and I have done this recipe three times now."

"Very delicious. The sour cream makes it have a creamy taste. I might even add more next time. Simple to make but oh so good. I also added some apple pie spice."

"It could have been my error but this pie didn't come out great. The crumb topping was a bit dry and it looked strange. Next time I would add more butter to make it more moist. Also, the granny smith apples that I put in it weren't cooked enough. I would increase the cooking time in my oven."
