Maine Maple-Walnut Pie

1/2 cup  firmly packed light brown sugar

1/3 cup  butter, softened

3  eggs

1/2 cup  light cream

1/4 cup  Maine maple syrup

1/4 tsp  salt

1 cup  walnuts, broken into pieces

1 tsp  vanilla

9 inch  unbaked piecrust


• Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

• In a saucepan, cream the granulated sugar, brown sugar and butter.

• Add the eggs and beat well.

• Add the cream, maple syrup and salt.

• Cook over low heat for five minutes, stirring constantly.

• Remove from the heat, and stir in the walnuts and vanilla.

• Pour into the pie crust, then bake for one hour.
