Maple Walnut Pie - by Summer

I was pretty excited to make this pie.  I love pecan pie, but have never made it before and this seemed like a variation of that pie.  I figured if I could make this one, then I can make a pecan one!  I had trouble finding Grade B maple syrup and I have a sick toddler.  I didn't feel like dragging him to every store, so we settle for some Grade A.

This recipe calls for a frozen pie crust.  I, however, do not like the taste of frozen pie crusts (yes, I can tell the difference), so I opted to make my own.  This recipe was so easy - I managed to pull it all together right before dinner and then get that ready while the pie was baking in the oven.

I think that the frozen pie crusts must be a little smaller, because even though I used my small pie plate, I felt as though there wasn't enough filling and too many walnuts.  But I loved this pie and my husband liked it too!  In fact, I even had to have seconds.  I would definitely make this again, but maybe use slightly less walnuts.

  1. I remember making this earlier this year and absolutely adoring it! The maple made it extra special for me.
