Crust:

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable shortening

Instructions:

Combine flour and salt in a mixing bowl. Cut in the butter and shortening with a pastry blender or a fork. Add about 5 tablespoons of cold water until you can form the dough into a ball. Roll it out to fit a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate.

Filling:

Ingredients:

  • 2-1/2 cups chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup dark maple syrup
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 5 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions:

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Spread the walnuts in the unbaked pie shell. In a mixing bowl combine all remaining ingredients and blend with a whisk until smooth. Pour the filling over the walnuts. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until firm.
