Dutch Apple Pie with Sour Cream Custard
When my daughter took the first slice of this pie, she asked me what the white stuff was... knowing that if I said sour cream anything, she'd turn her nose up in a huff, I quickly snipped "vanilla ice cream". She didn't bat an eye, and proceeded to tell me this was the best pie I have ever made as she licked her bowl clean. High praise from a 7 year old whose favorite past time is telling me I'm wrong. Now, if an adult asked me the same question, I'd probably say something like "it's a custard and it's delicious". Then I'd say, "imagine a cheese danish with slightly sweetened cinnamon scented apples....." Honestly, I've never made a pie like this before- and I have nothing to compare it to- but I loved it and I hope you will too If you like source material, I used Hoosier Mama and Silver Palate as starting points, and my intuition and pantry (what's available) from there. Pie is endlessly adaptable, so improvise as you see fit!
