This variation of apple pie caused raving comments from our Sunday night neighborhood gathering. It's very rich so serving it with the ice cream makes a good balance.


3/4 cup Sugar/ Splenda blend
2 tablespoons Flour
1 cup Low-fat sour cream
1 Egg
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
3  or 4 Apples, peeled, sliced
1 Unbaked (9-inch) pie shell
1/2 cup Flour
1/2 cup Sugar/ Splenda blend
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/3 cup Butter, softened


Combine 3/4 cup sugar and 2 Tablespoons flour in a bowl and mix well. Stir in the sour cream, egg, vanilla and cinnamon. Add the apples and mix gently. Spoon into the pie shell.


Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.


Combine 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and mix well. Cut in the butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over the baked pie.


Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes longer.

Serve warm or at room temperature with vanilla ice cream.


The orginal recipe used regular sour cream, sugar; we thought this version was plenty rich enough.  It also used nutmeg in the apple filling but by personal preference, I changed it to cinnamon.

NOTE: One cup sliced or chopped apple is the equivalent of one medium apple.
