WALNUT
PIE




Although the taste is quite different, black walnuts may
be used to replace English walnuts in any recipe, they
can replace other nuts as well.

6 1/3 tablespoons butter

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

3 - 4 tablespoons cold water



For the Filling

4 eggs

1 cup pure maple syrup

1/3 cup coconut sugar

3 tablespoons melted butter

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 cups black walnuts (soaked and dried*)



Note

For easier digestion and fantastic flavor soak and dry the black walnuts
ahead of time. Place 2 cups of nuts in a bowl. Add 1 t of sea salt and
cover the nuts with water. Stir to dissolve the salt. Allow to sit for
6 8 hours. Drain and dehydrate in a dehydrator or in your oven at
just under 150 degrees for 8 12 hours, or until completely dry and
