Judy's Apple Pie

We still have a refrigerator drawer full of apples.

This is the apple pie recipe I grew up with.  Judy is a family friend, but I don't remember her ever making it.  I do remember having it at Aunt Pat and Uncle Fred's house.  Aunt Pat and Uncle Fred are not "real" relatives, I just grew up calling them that.  They were in the same circle of friends, so maybe it did come from Judy.  Anyway, it is my favorite apple pie.

The original recipe calls for an oil crust.  I like it.  The farmer doesn't.  If you want the original, here it is:
1 1/2 c flour
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 c oil 
2 tbl milk

Combine with fork and pat into 9" pie pan.

Here is what I am using instead:
1 c flour
6 T butter
big pinch sugar
little pinch salt
1/4 c milk
Mix until it sticks together.  Refrigerate for at least 30 min and roll out on a floured board.

1/2 c. oatmeal
1/3 c flour
1/3 c brown sugar
1/3 c white sugar
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 stick softened butter

Mix together until chunky.

The best part:
4 or 5 apples peeled and sliced
1/2 c sour cream
2/3 c sugar
1/4 c flour
1/2 t cardamon (We have not added this in years because it smells like old shoes).
1/2 t cinnamon 

Mix and dump into your crust, sprinkle with topping.  Bake at 375 for 40-45 min.
