Like my mother, I have a reputation for making great pies...thanks to wonderfully unique recipes like this. After the pie is baked, a cream sauce is poured inside. It's irresistible!

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide dough in half. Roll out one portion. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom pastry; trim pastry even with edge of plate. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. Combine the sugar, flour, lemon peel, cinnamon and salt; add to apples and gently toss. Mound apples in pastry shell so center is higher than edges; dot with butter.
  3. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; cut a hole in the center about the size of a quarter. Place over filling; trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in pastry. Add decorative cutouts if desired.
  4. Cover edges loosely with foil. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 375° and remove foil. Bake 35-40 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, beat the egg, sugar and lemon juice. Cook and stir over low heat until mixture is thickened and reaches 160° and coats the back of a metal spoon.
  6. Remove from the heat; stir in cream cheese and sour cream until smooth. Slowly pour into center of pie. Cool on wire rack for 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Yield: 6-8 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 9, 2013

I made this pie probably 50 plus years ago. Time does fly but this is true. Yes the sauce will work BUT it's best to pre-cook your apples about 15 minutes with their spices and then pile them on high with a hole in the top about the size of a 50 cent piece. This is one of my favorite pies. Don't use purchased pie crust, make your own.

MY REVIEW

This was really good, but like the first review, I could not pour the cream into the pie. I made several holes in the top crust and used a pastry bag to inject the cream into the piel.
