Old Fashioned Apple Cream Pie, Mom's

Kathie Carr


This is a very old recipe. Mom made this pie when I was very young. Later she made the streussel topped apple pie for her pie fans.

This pie was less expensive to make, especially when apples and cream were readily available on the farm. Mom also used honey in place of sugar sometimes.

Its not as sweet as many apple pies but the cream makes it rich. I think fat free half and half might work in this recipe but have not tried it.

Gently pour cream over all. Sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar if desired.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes until apples are done. (Different varieties of apples cook differently so check their tenderness as baking progresses.)
