Most years, I have a large supply of black walnuts and am always looking for new ways to use them up. This dessert, which is similar to traditional pecan pie, has been a favorite for years.—Shirley Sutton, Garnavillo, Iowa


  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup chopped black walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)


  1. In a saucepan, combine the corn syrup, brown sugar and 1/2 cup sugar; bring to a boil. Remove from the heat; stir in butter until melted. In a bowl, beat eggs. Gradually stir in hot mixture; mix well. Add walnuts. Combine flour and remaining sugar; sprinkle over bottom of pastry shell. Pour walnut mixture into shell. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until browned.
