Black Walnut Pie
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 T. lemon juice
1 C. light corn syrup
1 t. vanilla
1 C. dark brown sugar
2 1/2 C. black walnuts
1/4 C. butter, melted
1 unbaked pie crust (9 inches) can use Graham cracker crust
Whipped Cream for garnish (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Gently combine all ingredients in order listed. Stir enough to
begin dissolving the sugar, but not enough to incorporate air
into the filling. Do not beat the filling or the pie will have
air bubbles on the top, instead of black walnuts. Pour filling
into the crust.
Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 60 minutes or until the center
of the pie is no longer loose and black walnuts are browned.
Serve at any temperature.
