  1. To make the filling, place the sour cream, sugar, egg substitute, flour, and vanilla extract in a large bowl, and stir to mix well. Add the apples and, if desired, the raisins, and toss to mix well.
  2. Spread the mixture evenly in the pie shell. Spray a square of aluminum foil with nonstick cooking spray, and cover the pie loosely with the foil, placing it sprayed side down. Bake at 400°F for 25 minutes, or until the filling begins to set around the edges.
  3. While the pie is baking, make the topping by placing the wheat germ or walnuts, flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a small bowl, and stirring to mix well. Add the juice concentrate, and stir until the mixture is moist and crumbly.
  4. Remove the pie from the oven, remove and discard the foil, and sprinkle the pie with the topping. Reduce the oven temperature to 375°F, and bake uncovered for 25 to 30 additional minutes, or until the topping is nicely browned and the filling just starts to bubble around the edges.
  5. Allow the pie to cool for at least 1 hour before cutting into wedges and serving. Serve warm or at room temperature, refrigerating any leftovers.
