MY REVIEW

Very tasty pie. We had it after Thanksgiving dinner. Yum!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 10, 2010

I have made this pie several times & am about to make it again for our Thanksgiving dinner. We prefer pies without a top crust so we can savour the filling & this pie is excellent for that! I usually use macintosh apples when I can get them fresh & tart, because they break down perfectly when cooked. Cortland hold their shape too well for my liking & take much longer to cook, as do granny smith

My pie actually came out nice and moist. I don't like my pies to be really googy.

MY REVIEW

I found this pie to be dry. Too many apples for amount of sour cream. I used granny smith apples. I also used 3 tsp. of butter to make the crumbs 2 tsp. not enough for amount of dry ingredents.All in all not a bad pie especially because its not too sweet.Tse
