Jana’s Apple Pie

My friend Jana created this recipe and gave it to me years ago, swearing me to secrecy since she planned to enter it in an Apple pie contest. We were all sure this pie would win. When I reached out to Jana to ask permission for including this recipe on my site, and asked about whether it had won or not, she txt’d, “It didn’t win. They are idiots“.

  • 1 15 ounce pie crust (I use Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Pie Crust)
  • 3 cups Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 T flour
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup oats
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Put apples in shell
  • Pour mixture over apples
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes
  • Remove from oven and add crumbled topping
  • Cover and continue baking for another 25 minutes
