I’m back with what may end up being the last holiday recipe that I post this season. I had soooo much for fall (some I never even got posted, true-to-form and my usual poor planning), and then I had so much I wanted to do for Christmas, but there was very little time between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year! That really threw off my baking schedule.
So little time, so much to make, but this Maple Walnut Pie is a really a great way to cap things off because it’s easy-breezy, preps in minutes, and you can get it ready with minimal equipment. One bowl, to be exact. So if you’re on the hunt for simple and easy options as we near Christmas, this Maple Nut Pie fits the bill.
Maple Walnut Pie is a joy. It’s rich and gooey, kissed with maple syrup, plus maple extract for an extra boost of maple, and loaded with walnuts that toast as they bake. If you’ve never had maple and walnuts together, this pie is something you need to experience.
A pairing that you absolutely must try. I feel like every time I combine a few belong-together ingredients, I say that they’re a dynamic duo, or a power team, or whatever… but it equally applies to maple and walnuts. They’re made for each other! You won’t be disappointed, and this is a combo that I never tire of together.
This Maple Nut Pie is a great option if you’d like an unconventional nut pie recipe for the holidays, and you still need a dessert that you can prepare with minimal time and effort.

- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup butter melted

- Stir in chopped walnuts.
