Recipe: Walnut Molasses Pie

This came from Taste of Home years ago, and I hung onto it after making it the first time. So easy to make, but high in calories! Take care with portion size. I made this for work recently, and it got raves!

Ingredients

3 eggs
3/4 cup light corn syrup
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup molasses
1 teaspoon Spice Islands® pure vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts
1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)

Directions

In a bowl, whisk the eggs, corn syrup, sugar, butter, molasses and vanilla until blended; stir in walnuts. Pour into pastry shell. Cover edges with foil.

Bake at 350° for 25 minutes; remove foil. Bake 12-17 minutes longer or until top of pie is et and crust is golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours before cutting. Yield: 6-8 servings.
