"In my heritage, before one meal is finished the woman of the house is planning the next one.  We entertain with food, we sympathize with food, we show our love with food, we welcome new neighbors with food.  Whatever the occasion is we include food...especially those of us from Southern Country heritage."

We would love Shirley to have our "Southern Women Kitchen Award for the month of May....for an excellent site that is entertaining, informative and just plain fun.

Now, Sisters, ya'll get on down to Shirley's page and see for yourself!!!

1-1/2 cups sour cream

TO PREPARE THE FILLING: 
In a large mixing bowl, beat egg slightly.  Stir in sour cream, sugar, flour, vanilla and salt until mixture is smooth.  Add sliced apples, stirring gently just to coat apples.  Spoon filling into shell. 

Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes, lower heat to 350 degrees and bake 35 minutes longer.  While pie bakes, prepare topping. 

TO PREPARE THE TOPPING: 
In a small bowl, combine butter, flour, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and walnuts and blend well. 

Remove pie from oven and sprinkle topping evenly over filling.  Return to oven.
