Great Grandma's Sour Cream Apple Pie + Printable Recipe Cards
Today I am showing you how to make a "not so typical" apple pie and this tradition was handed down to me by my "not so typical" great grandmother Emma Geiger LaGorin, of German descent. I was lucky enough to have my great grandmother alive and well until I was around 20 years old. I called her "great grandma on the farm" because...well... she lived on a farm of course! Each visit to grandma on the farm's house in rural Ohio, would begin with a huge dinner, farmer's wife style. When we arrived and walked through the back door, instantly you would be welcomed by the smell of her fresh baked Sour Cream Apple Pie cooling in the pantry. I would rush through dinner just to get to this sweet, tangy, creamy pie! Till this day when I bake this pie I'm transported to grandma on the farm's house.
Thanks for letting me go down memory lane with you today and share a recipe which is very near and dear to my heart. I hope this posting sparks a new tradition in your family for years to enjoy!
