There 's real maple syrup, Earl Grey tea, vinegar, brown sugar, and toasted walnuts in this sweet pie 's filling. Everything is whisked and stirred together, poured into a prepared crust, and baked. Serve it with whipped cream.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):

  • In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar. Add the syrup, butter, tea, vinegar, and salt. Whisk until smooth. Stir in the nuts.
  • Place the pie shell on a cookie sheet, and pour the filling into the shell. Bake in a preheated 450 degree F (230 degrees C) oven for 10 minutes.
