My favorite apple pie. I love the way the fresh apples taste layered in thin slices, rather than premade into a syrupy filling. The sour cream and walnut topping compliment this perfectly. You are welcome to peel the apples as you wish, but I do not cleanly peel the apples, leaving a little bit of peel here and there. I like the added texture, flavor, and nutrients.
