One Slice German Apple Pie

-- preheat oven 350*

Pie Crust (it is all about the chemistry)
2 1/2 c flour
1 c Crisco
1/2 c ice water
1t apple vinegar
dash salt

1 9" unbaked pie shell
5 c apples (combo Granny Smith and your fav)
            peel, core, evenly sliced about 7-8 per half,
            sprinkle with 2 T sugar, a bit of cornstarch, and 1/2 t cinnamon; stir to coat.

Cream Mixture                 Mix together in a separate bowl:
1 egg
1 c sugar
2 T flour
1/4 t salt
1 c sour cream
1 t vanilla

Put sliced apples int unbaked pie shell until level, do not pack tight.  Pour half the cream mixture over the top of the apples.  Put remaining apples in a mound in the center of the pie plate.  Pour remaining cream mixture over mounded apples.  With knife, gently pull apples apart so cream can drip between the apples.
Bake at 350* for 40-45 minutes.

Crumb Topping
1 c brown sugar
1 c flour
1 t cinnamon
1 c oatmeal
1/2 c butter
