Maple Syrup Pie
Folks in New Hampshire apparently appreciate maple syrup almost as much as we do in Vermont. When my husband and I took a road trip through New Hampshire, we discovered this pie at a number of diners and restaurants. We loved it so much we created our own version. —Laurie Herr, Westford, Vermont
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2/3 cup water
- 1-1/2 cups real maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Pastry for double-crust pie
- Preheat oven to 400°. In a large saucepan, whisk cornstarch and water until smooth; whisk in syrup. Bring to boil; cook and stir until thickened, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in butter until melted. Set aside to cool.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll dough for bottom crust to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim crust to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Chill 30 minutes. Meanwhile, roll remaining dough to 1/4-in.-thickness; cut out maple leaves with 1-1/2 to 2-1/2- inch cookie cutters. Place on a baking sheet; chill.
- Transfer maple filling to prepared pie plate. Bake 10 minutes on a lower oven rack. Reduce oven setting to 350°. Bake until crust is golden and filling is bubbly, 35-40 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. Bake leaf cutouts until golden brown, 8-10 minutes. Arrange cutouts on top of pie to serve.
