Made these recently for a church event...everyone wanted the recipe...so thought I would share here also. The recipe came from a quilting friend who recently passed away...she was an expert quilter/appliquer...did most by hand. I will think of her every time I make these.
1-1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1-1/2 tsp cinnamon
½ cup butter, softened
2 Tbls apple cider
1-1/2 cups sour cream
1 tsp lemon juice
¾ cup sugar
¼ cup flour
4 cups cups chopped, peeled apples
½ cup flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
½ tsp cinnamon
1 cup chopped walnuts
FOR CRUST: combine flour, sugar, cinnamon. Cut in butter with pastry blender. Mix in apple cider and press into 9x13 pan.
FOR FILLING: combine egg, sour cream, lemon juice, sugar and flour. Fold in the apples. Spread over crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
FOR TOPPING: mix together ingredients. Sprinkle over cake, and bake another 10 minutes.
My variation: Drizzle caramel sauce over top of cake before serving.
Option: Next time I make, I will probably do the topping with only the sugar, cinnamon and nuts, not the flour.
That sounds wonderful. I've always believed that two things that should be shared are recipes and plants.
Thanks for sharing.
They sound very good. I would think the topping would need a bit of butter to hold it together if you use flour. I like crumb topping on many things. The caramel sauce is a nice addition.
I love apple season. We live near a place called Apple Hill and I always look forward to going up several times each season for a variety of apples. Apple recipes are such a treat, this one is on my list, going to make it today. Thanks so much for sharing.
Oh, it looks like it'll be yummy. I have copied it & placed it in my recipe file. Thanks for sharing.
Oooooh, this sounds wonderful. I can't wait to try it. Thanks for sharing.
The butter sounds like a good idea if going to use the flour....otherwise, just leaving the flour out is what I plan on doing the next time I make them. Thanks for the suggestion!

I used to have a recipe that was similar, but used cream cheese instead of sour cream and had sliced almonds too.
Definately going to try this recipe
This sounds good. I hope that this will provide good taste. I am very impressed with this recipe. I have learnt lot of recipes today. Great forum.
