Maple Syrup Pie
Pastry for 2-crust pie
1 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup water
3 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp cold water
1/4 cup nuts -- chopped
Boil the maple syrup and 1/2 cup of water for 5 minutes.
Blend the cornstarch with the 2 tablespoons of water and add to the syrup. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth and transparent.
Add the butter and chopped nuts and let it cool.
Bake between two crusts at 400 degrees F for 25-30 minutes.
NOTES : Of all the maple syrup pies I've made, none was ever as good as this
one. The recipe dates from Colonial days when crushed wheat was used to thicken the mixture
