Farm Family Recipe – Sour Cream Apple Pie

Posted on February 24, 2012 at 12:45 PM by Iowa Corn

We are starting a regular feature on our blog called “Farm Family Recipe”. It seems that just about every Iowa farm family has a go to “best” recipe that has been handed down from generation to generation.  These recipes are an important part of every family’s tradition and we are excited to feature some of them on our blog.


Our recipe this week comes from Kevin and Sara Ross.  Kevin and Sara, are the sixth generation to farm near Minden, and they hope their son will be the seventh.  On their farm they raise corn, soybeans, cattle and hay.  Both Kevin and Sara are also active in the agriculture industry.  Kevin is the current president of the Iowa Corn Growers Association and Sara is an Iowa CommonGround Volunteer.  Sara also writes a blog about being a farm mom and wife at


The Sour Cream Apple pie is from Sara’s Grandma Ruby Dinkelman.


Sour Cream Apple Pie


3/4 cup sour cream

1 egg

2/3 cup sugar

1 tablespoon flour

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

3 pounds tart apples

1 pie crust



1 cup flour

1/3 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup butter, softened



1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.  Peel, core and slice apples.  Mix sour cream, egg, sugar, flour, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl.  Add the sliced apples and toss to coat evenly.

3.  Place the pie crust in the bottom of a pie pan.  Pour the apple mixture into the pie crust.  

4.  In another bowl, mix the flour, brown sugar and cinnamon.  Cut in the butter using a pastry blender.  Sprinkle topping over the pie filling.

5.  Bake for 45 minutes to one hour.  

6.  Serve hot or let cool and refrigerate and serve cold (both ways are delicious!).  Enjoy!


That is an easy recipe. I might make them for breakfast tomorrow.Marlene<a href="" rel="nofollow">Info site for San Antonio Moving Company</a>
