Makes 8 servings


  • 5 Granny Smith apples
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 9-inch unbaked pie shells
  • 1 cup Daisy Brand Sour Cream
  • 1 egg, beaten


Peel, core and slice apples. Toss in the lemon juice. Add 1/3 cup sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the apple mixture and simmer for 5 minutes, covered, stirring occasionally. Strain and reserve the liquid and apples.

Whisk the cornstarch with water. Return the apple liquid to the pan. Whisk in the cornstarch slurry. While whisking, bring the mixture back to a simmer and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Pour over the apples and cool in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Combine the apple mixture with the pecans and pour into one of the pie crusts. Top with sour cream. Toss the second pie crust onto a lightly floured surface. Cut into 1-inch strips and arrange over the pie in a lattice design. Brush the lattice top, but not the edges with beaten egg. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar. Place the pie pan on a cookie sheet. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Bake pie for 40 minutes.

If the crust begins to get too dark, remove from the oven, cover with aluminum foil and return for the remaining baking time.

Tip: You can use canned apple pie filling in place of the apples, lemon juice, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, butter, cornstarch and water.
