Sour Cream Apple Pie



I found this delicious pie recipe on the Simply Recipes blog. Brent is a huge apple pie fan...so I am always game to try one for him! This is a little different than most...it has a creamy filling (hence the sour cream) and has a streusel topping instead of a pie crust...I was a little worried about that, but I think I may actually prefer this one to the typical all-American apple pie! I made this pie twice in one week...it's that good! (And by the way, I like to serve mine with vanilla ice cream, preferably Blue Bell!) And so, I am serving it for Thanksgiving tomorrow, along with a few other treats! (see previous post!)

Happy Thanksgiving to all! Tell me what you are thankful for this year...or what your favorite Thanksgiving food is!
