Mom's Sour Cream Apple Pie

Oh my, this is an incredible pie. In fact, my sister had it served at her wedding reception, it's that good! Yup, my dear mom made them all from scratch but, hey is there any other way? Especially with a mom that bakes the way she does! Anyhow, this is creamy and delicious, You need to grate the apples, don't cut them in chunks like a traditional apple pie, it won't be the same. This pie is perfect for any time of year! We had it served warm with vanilla ice cream for Thanksgiving :)

Mom's Sour Cream Apple Pie
3 c grated apples (best with yellow delicious)
3/4 c sugar mixed with 3 Tbs flour
1/2 t salt
1 beaten egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup sour cream

Peel apples and grate into a bowl. Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix remaining ingredients together and then stir in grated apples. Pour apple mixture into an unbaked pie shell. Spoon on crumb topping (recipe below)

Crumb topping:
With pastry blender mix until crumbly:
1/2 stick butter
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar

Bake 325*F for 40 min or until set.
