"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"

"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"
