Maple Walnut Pecan Pie

I thought you might like a pie. I actually made this for the pie party, and then again for something else, I think, or maybe I just made a mental note to. Walnuts make delicious pies – why should pecans get all the attention? And besides, maple and walnuts are a perfect ice cream pairing. With a filling you stir together in approximately two minutes, nut pies are as easy to make as pies get, and strangely satisfying to make in the fall. Like I’m channeling my inner squirrel.

If you’re a hard-core nuts and caramel fanatic you could make this a double whammy and top a slice with a scoop of maple walnut or butter pecan ice cream.

pastry for a single crust pie


1 cup packed brown sugar

3/4 cup pure maple syrup

1/2 cup golden syrup (such as Roger's or Lyle's)

3 large eggs

1/4 cup butter, softened

1/4 tsp. salt

1 cups pecan halves, toasted

1 cups walnut halves, toasted


1Preheat the oven to 350F. Line your pie plate with pastry and crimp the edges.


3In a medium bowl, stir together the brown sugar, maple syrup, golden syrup, eggs, butter and salt. (Don’t worry about getting all the lumps of butter out.) Scatter the pecans and walnuts over the bottom of the shell and pour the mixture overtop.


5Set on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 50-60 minutes, until set. Cool completely before cutting.

    mmmm…as long as your inner squirrel isn’t Scaredy Squirrel you’ll be ok. I’m with Kathy though, there’s only one of me, and i’d probably make this pie into tarts! mmmmmm

    If I saw that in the pastry case of a good coffee place I think I’d die. Can’t believe how great that pastry looks! The filling looks fantastic too of course.

    Pecan pie is a family tradition for Thanksgiving!!! I love the maple element and see that popping up a lot lately. I just had one of the best cupcakes ever and it was a pecan pie inspired cupcake!! the frosting was maple!!! YUM – I think I need to modify my traditional pie recipe. Thank you!!

    The other comments just gave me a great idea for holiday baking! Maple walnut tarts! The men in my family would love them. Of course they also love raisin butter tarts but there are always room for more tarts on the table!

    FYI for anyone else who wants to make it as tarts, this recipe made approximately 25 tarts..although the last few were little shy on nuts!
