Maple Syrup Pie




    • 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


              • Preheat oven to 400°.
              • 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.
              • 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.
              • To make filling, combine all filling ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat well.  Pour into a saucepan.   Cook while stirring with a whisk until mixture comes to a simmer and then thickens slightly.   Cool for 5 minutes and then pour into prepared pie crust.
              • Bake for 15 minutes at 400° and then turn oven to 375° and bake for 30 more minutes.
              • Place in a refrigerator overnight to set the pie.
              • Serve with fresh whipped cream!
