Maple-walnut pie

Does anyone have a tried and true maple-walnut pie recipe to share?

  1. This is the filling ingredients I use for both pecan and walnut pie. Growing up, my grandmother had a black walnut tree in her yard and walnut pie made with these is so delicious. But regular walnuts would work too.

    5 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
    1 cup brown sugar
    3/4 cup corn syrup **see note below
    1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3 large eggs, well beaten
    1 teaspoon all purpose flour
    2 cups roughly chopped walnuts

    **If using maple syrup, use 3/4 cup instead of the corn syrup in the recipe. If using maple extract, use the corn syrup and add 1 1/2 teaspoons maple extract.

    In a large mixing bowl, beat together all of the ingredients EXCEPT the walnuts until completely well blended. Stir in the walnuts and spoon mixture into a prepared pie crust. Place onto a baking sheet; bake pie in a preheated 350F. degree oven for 40-45 minutes or until center is set, covering edges of pie if you see they are becoming dark before pie is cooked. Set aside to cool.
