Preparation

Pie crust:
Put the flour in a large bowl, add the butter cut into very fine pieces and mix it together with your hands.
Make a fountain (a hole) in the middle; add the egg yolk, the sugar, the salt and the water.
Blend everything together by incorporating the flour/butter mixture little by little and knead it until the dough is smooth.
Let it rest for a few minutes.

Pie:
Roll out the crust with a rolling pin and place it in a round pie tin.
Peel and cut the apples into thin slices and distribute them on the crust in an even pattern.

Preheat the oven to 200°C (thermostat 6-7).
In a bowl, mix the sugar, the eggs, the vanilla sugar and the sour cream. Pour this mixture over the apples.

Bake the pie in the oven for about 30-40 minutes.

Bon appétit !
