Filling:

  • 2 cups cold maple syrup
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp. flour

Pie Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 tbsp. cold water

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. To make pie crust, combine flour, shortening and salt in a large bowl.  Mix with a pastry knife until pea sized balls form.  Drizzle water over mixture one tbsp. at a time.  Use a fork to mix in water.  Add enough water so that mixture sticks together slightly.
  3. Roll dough on a well-floured board into a circle, rolling from the center to the edge, using flour on your rolling pin to make sure it doesn’t stick.  Fold the dough in half, place in a 9″ pie plate and unfold to fit the pan.
  4. To make filling, combine all filling ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat well.  Pour into a sauce pan.   Cook while stiring with a wisk until mixture comes to a simmer and then thinkens slightly.   Cool for 5 minutes and then poor into prepared pie crust.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes at 400° and then turn oven to 375° and bake for 30 more minutes.
  6. Place in a refridgerator overnight to set the pie.
  7. Serve with fresh whipped cream!
