  • 50 grams of walnuts, chopped (for extra crunch)


1. Preheat and Prep:

  • Preheat your oven to 180°C (356°F). Grease a pie dish or line it with parchment paper.

  • Stir in the sour cream (or yogurt) and melted butter until well combined.
  • Gradually sift in the flour and baking powder, folding gently to incorporate them without overmixing. Stir in the vanilla extract and chopped walnuts.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pie dish, smoothing the top with a spatula.

3. Prepare the Topping:

  • Combine flour, sugar, and cold cubed butter in a bowl. Employ your fingertips to rub the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  • Stir in the chopped walnuts.
  • Sprinkle this topping evenly over the pie batter.

4. Bake:

  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 35-45 minutes, or until the pie is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cool slightly before slicing. This pie is delightful both warm and at room temperature.

5. Serve:

  • Enjoy this walnut pie as is, or serve it with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream for an extra indulgent treat.
