How to Make a Delicious Apple Sour Cream Pie with Raisins and Spices

Apple season is the perfect excuse for baking something delectable since apples are at their best price at this time of like my apple sour cream pie. Imagine the goodness of some chopped apples, sour cream, raisins with just a minimum of spices mingling with brown sugar in a pie with a top crust.

The most difficult part about making my pie is peeling and then chopping a few apples. Afterwards, it is just assembly work incorporating all the ingredients and pouring this filling into an unbaked crust.

Though you can use any pie crust that you want, I never steer away from my oil pie crust. Trust me, but this one has never let me down. It is healthier using olive oil or canola oil instead of shortening and is as flaky as can be. Even if you never made a pie crust in your life, this crust is foolproof.

The sour cream provides a subtle balance of sweetness from the raisins in this rich pie that will practically melt in your mouth. In addition, I only used just a small bit of cinnamon and nutmeg against the brown sugar, raisins and sour cream for a unique blending of flavors that nicely enhanced this pie instead of dominating.

The next time that you feel in the mood to bake a pie, I hope that you print out my apple sour cream pie recipe and give it a try. Honestly, I think that you will really love it.
