Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup walnut (optional)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup amber or dark maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
Pastry:
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter cubed
  • 1/4 cup cold lard cubed
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar

Method

Pastry: In large bowl, whisk flour with salt. Using pastry blender, cut in butter and lard until in fine crumbs with a few larger pieces.

In liquid measure, whisk egg yolk with vinegar; add enough ice water to make 1/3 cup (75 mL). Drizzle over flour mixture, tossing with fork and adding a little more water if necessary to form ragged dough. Press into disc; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

On lightly floured surface, roll out pastry to 1/8-inch (3 mm) thickness; fit into 9-inch (23 cm) pie plate. Trim to leave 1/2-inch (1 cm) overhang; fold overhang under and flute edge. Sprinkle with walnuts (if using).

In large bowl, whisk eggs with brown sugar until creamy; whisk in maple syrup, cream and flour until smooth. Pour into pie shell.

Bake on foil-lined baking sheet in bottom third of 375°F (190°C) oven until pastry is golden and filling is puffed and dry to the touch but still trembles, 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool on rack.
