Similar to a traditional pecan pie, this maple walnut pie is simple, sweet perfection. Relying on textured, buttery walnuts instead of pecans and the distinct flavor of maple syrup, this pie will be a standout favorite for any gathering.
Maple Walnut Pie
1 (9″) partially baked pie shell
1 cup walnut pieces
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup corn syrup
Preheat oven to 350. Place the pie shell on a sturdy baking sheet and pour the walnut pieces in the pie shell and spread them out evenly. In a mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, vanilla and melted butter and whisk it until combined. Whisk in the eggs, one at a time, and scrape the bowl to combine completely. Finally, whisk in the maple and corn syrups and pour over the walnuts. Bake the pie until it is set in the middle and puffed up slightly, about 40 minutes.
Let cool completely before slicing and serving.
