Help me make this apple pie "Scotty friendly" - GF and Yolk free

kitchengardengal | Nov 12, 2013 11:37 AM

I want to make my mother's Sour Cream Apple Pie for a friend who must have gluten free and yolk free.
It calls for a standard pie crust - so what is the best substitute to go with apple pie? Pecan, perhaps?

Here's the recipe. How can I make the custard filling without flour or egg yolks? Cornstarch? Xanthan gum? I can use egg whites.

Sour Cream Apple Pie

1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup sugar
2 tbs flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1egg
5 cups peeled sliced apples
1 9" unbaked pie shell

Beat sour cream, sugar, flour, salt, vanilla and egg.
Add apples - pour into pie shell.
Bake at 400' for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with struesel topping and bake for 20 minutes more.

Topping
Mix ;
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 cup butter

Thanks for any advice!
