VINTAGE RECIPE THURSDAY
This is my first time participating in Vintage Recipe Thursday! I found this over at grampy and you so I thought I'd join in. Join me on Joys of Desserts blog and leave your link. We have a lot of sweet-tooth dreams come true.
BLACK WALNUT PIE (My Grandma's Recipe)
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup maple syrup (homemade or store-bought)
1-2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla and a little lemon flavor
2 T water
pinch of salt
1 cup walnut meats
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Combine ingredients and bake in unbaked pie crust for 45 minutes.
**My Note: I wonder if Grandma's oven temperature was "off" and it baked hotter than it should have, because 300 degrees seems a little low. If I was baking it in my oven, I would probably go with around 375 degrees. After she passed away, I got her recipe box; I wish she was still here so I could ask her about some of them! **
