The Perfect Pie for Fall – Sour Cream Apple Pie

sour cream apple pie -Yum!

Fall is definately in full swing, the days are shorter, the mornings colder, the red dogwood branches are bare and glowing and life still is not slowing down in the Wilson household. This week we have the end of season soccer party for Coco and end of season tennis banquet for Mr. D ( of course on the same night), voting, Mr. SHS contest for Mr. D, fencing in Seattle for Coco, snowing in Boston, so Miss G. needs snow boots…..the list goes on. I am making progress in organizing the junk“craft” room, but in the meantime the kitchen is awry with the tennis banquet centerpieces I am concocting. I definately need an Alice.

Fall is also the perfect season for apple pie and sour cream apple pie is a new one I recently tried out. Sour cream apple pie,  along with apple cranberry crumble pie, now tops my list of favorite apple pies (so far!). It is supremely tasty and a good one to try out for the holidays!

    Joan, I have been cruising this site since day one – – and I am finally commenting. I tend to be highly efficient cruising through Facebook, blogs and such, and usually don’t take the time to comment. I LOVE your blog — your thoughts, your side notes about family, your hilarity factor, and your amazing recipes. You are one gifted gal. I think I will try this apple pie for Thanksgiving — I’m hosting the Hamlin Clan this year. My favorite part of your entry in this particular post is the reference to Alice. Long live the Brady Bunch! Anyhoo (to quote Jason Sanders) thanks a million for sharing your beautiful blog – – it’s one of my favorites!
