Maple Walnut Pie
Recipe from: Rancho Vignola, Armstrong, BC
Maple and walnuts are an ever popular match in the culinary world, and for good reason, it's delicious! Impress your friends with a new take on a the traditional pecan pie.
1 9-inch pie shell, frozen for a minimum of 30 minutes before baking if making the shell from scratch
2 c roughly chopped walnuts
2 eggs, beaten
1 c maple syrup (the darker the more maple flavour the pie will have)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp of ground nutmeg
Preheat your oven to 375°F.
Chop the walnuts and set aside. Next, in a medium bowl beat the eggs, then mix in the maple syrup, vanilla extract, spices and salt. Whisk until smooth.
If you’ve made your own crust it will cook best if frozen for at least 30 minutes before baking, if you have a pre made crust you can skip that step and move onto the next.
Place the walnuts in the crust first, then poor over the egg and maple syrup mixture. Place on the middle rack of your pre heated oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, checking to make sure your crust isn’t over browning. If it does, cover it with some foil to cover the edges.
Take the pie out once the walnuts start to brown on the top, and allow to cool completely before serving.
