Donice's Apple Pie..going going gone!

I had baked two of these wonderful pies yesterday , using a favorite recipe of my late sister in law. I made one for my brother Don, who left some pretty big hints for me to make him a pie.... like his beloved Donice used to make... and one for my son and husband for this weekend. I delivered Don's pie yesterday but this is all that was left for a picture tonight! I just went upstairs to snap a photo to show how beautiful a crust it made, but this was what was left...Needless to say, Aunt Donice's apple pie was a huge hit! this is easy to make and worth the effort..Your families will love it!
NOTE: I was asked if you can use peaches with this recipie?..I haven't tried it yet, but was wondering the same thing..since peaches make more juice I am thinking double the flour or add tapico to the mix to thicken it more. I think with the sour cream this would be delicious , made with peaches!
