In large mixing bowl, combine Apples, the 1/2 cup sugar, flour, walnuts and cinnamon. Set aside. In small mixing bowl, combine sour cream, egg and the 2 tablespoons sugar. Set aside.

Place pie crust on 12-inch pizza pan. Seal any cracks. Place Apple mixture in center of pie crust, leaving 3-inch pastry rim. Pull up edges of pie crust, covering part of Apple filling, pleating pie crust edge every 2 inches. Pour sour cream mixture carefully over Apples.

Bake in 375°F oven about 50 minutes or until pastry is golden and Apples are tender. Serve warm or cold. Yield: 8 servings.
