Ingredients
  • 2 Crusts (top and bottom):
  • 3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 4 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 20 tablespoons butter, frozen
  • 1 cup sour cream, plus an additional tablespoon or three if needed
  • Filling:
  • 5 CUPS SLICED & PEELED APPLES (I used Honeycrisp & Gingergold) (approx6-7)
  • 1 C. LIGHT BROWN SUGAR
  • 6 TABLESPOONS CORNSTARCH
  • 1 TSP. CINNAMON
  • ¼ TSP. SALT
  • 1 TABLESPOON DICED BUTTER
Instructions
  1. Crust:
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and sugar.
  3. With the large holes of a box grater, grate the butter into the dry ingredients.
  4. With a fork, toss the butter and flour mixture until the butter pieces are all evenly coated with flour.
  5. Add sour cream to the bowl.
  6. Mix it into the butter and flour as you press down the fork making large clumps.
  7. After a little mixing, use your hands to pull dough together. May be a bit shaggy but keep pressing it and it will form a ball. If dry, add drop more sour cream. Divide into balls.
  8. Roll one out on a floured surface and lay into your pie pan.
  9. Trim the edges to within ¼-inch. Chill 30 minutes.
  10. Add filling:
