Walnut Pie

"I have had this recipe for many many years. I believe it originally came from a Karo syrup bottle. I make this every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. Pecan pie and walnut pie are my favorite pies. The walnut pie has a toasted nut flavor."

    Hello, walnut-pie bakers! I have a question. I'm using Puff Pastry for the pie crust. Are you sure I shouldn't pre-bake it before filling? Or should I just make sure to poke it so it doesn't rise too much and go for it?

    This pie is FANTASTIC!!!!!! I was very surprised at the taste. By chance, I have a walnut tree in my backyard (don't have to buy them) lol. I can't keep my mother in law away from it. I did a few things different, I mixed all the wet together then combined them with the dry. I also put the walnuts in the mixture and poured it in a pie shell. The walnuts come to the top and it gives them a good coating while baking.

    My husband loves pecan and Walnut pies, so I decided to make a walnut pie for thanksgiving since walnuts were on sale. I ran out of corn syrup and used about 1/4 cup raw blue agave and the pie came out wonderful. My husband is very happy. Thanks

    What a terrific pie! Pecan pie used to be my favorite but I just so happened to have a 1lb bag of walnuts so I decided to go for it. This pie is to die for. Wow.

I would like to let you all know that I am no longer able to review your recipes that I have tried. since they changed the site around webtv does not supprt zaars new site.I have a webtv not a computer and webtv does not support the new recipezaar site. so I will no longer be able to review your great recipes,nor will I be able to put my own recipes on here.Please don't think I wouldn't like to review your recipes,it was one of the nice parts of zaar that I did enjoy doing. So please forgive!!! I am Married to the same guy for 40 years,I Have 2 beautiful Daughters, who have given me 6 grand and glorious grandchildren. I love to cook,in fact you could call it my favorite hobby My pet peeve is telemarketers,Every time I get busy with my recipe hobby one of them will call and knock me off the web,and of coarse I waste precious time getting back on.I am disabled,so I no longer work,and have plenty of time to pursue my hobby. My best dish I make is Lasagna but thats just because I love lasagna.I am also asked to bring No-Bake cookies at all of our potlucks, and linger-longers at church.Meat loaf is another often requested dish I am asked to bring...... NOT MY meatloaf but .... My husbands. He is as good a cook as I am,He can cook anything I can cook, and I can cook anything he can cook,but some things I make better,and some He makes better...So we do a lot of compromising at our house.
