OLD SOUTHERN WALNUT MOLASSES PIE

This is an old Southern favorite.  Having lived from New York to Texas, I have picked up old recipes from the north to the south!

3 large eggs
3/4 cup clear corn syrup
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
1 unbaked pie crust

Fit the pie crust into a 9-inch pie plate and set aside while you make the filling. To make filling whisk the eggs, corn syrup, sugar, butter, molasses and vanilla together in a bowl until blended then stir in the walnuts.  Pour the mixture into the unbaked pie crust and cover crust edges loosely with aluminum foil.

Bake the pie at 350 degrees for about 25 to 30 minutes then remove the foil.  Continue to bake another 15 minutes or so until the crust is browned and the center of the pie is set.  Cool then refrigerate an hour or so before cutting to serve.
