Sour Cream Red Apple and Blueberry Pie

I love this pie recipe...sweet and creamy with a touch of tart from lovely early apples.
It is a recipe out of the Depression Era and has a delightful old fashioned aura.
I made a couple this morning for the cousins coming over tonight...but we did have a little taste for lunch this afternoon.
It was mighty wonderful!


I am joining Anne Marie for Pie*ography Thursday.

It is so much fun to share so many decadent pie recipes.
I am still waiting for my Pieography book to come in the mail.
It is beautifully photographed by Traci Thorson and styled by Anne Marie.

This pie was so delicious and a nice turn on the traditional apple pie.

Sour Cream Red Apple and Blueberry Pie

1 pastry crust
Butter Cinnamon Topping {Recipe to Follow}
3 cups tart, early summer apples peeled and finely chopped
1 cup bleberries

1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tsp. cornstarch

{Butter Cinnamon Topping}
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Blend all ingredients in a small bowl thoroughly until it is crumbly.
I use my fingers :).

Line a 9 inch pie plate, greased, with pie shell.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Set chopped apples and blueberries aside and combine flour, cinnamon, and sugar together.
 Add sour cream, egg, vanilla, salt, and cornstarch; beat until smooth.
Add apples and blueberries and mix well.
Pour into prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes.
Reduce heat to 325 degrees and bake for 20 minutes more.
Remove from oven and  top with Butter Cinnamon Topping.
Bake for another 25 minutes.
Let cool before serving.

This pie looks awesome! I went to print it out, but then noticed there was no mention of blueberries anywhere in the recipe. How many? When to add?

I have a recipe for Sour Cream Apple pie that is really quite similar to this one. It's very delicious. I can imagine that adding the blue berries will only make it better.
