Walnut Pie with Cream Cheese Crust

Walnut Pie with Cream Cheese Crust

Instead of pecan pie, thrill your family and guests with this delicious walnut pie with a melt-in-your-mouth cream cheese crust.

Ingredients

Cream Cheese Crust

Walnut Filling



Instructions

  1. Cream Cheese Crust: Cream butter and cream cheese together.
  2. Add flour and cinnamon; mix just until a dough ball has formed (use the dough hook attachment if supplied with mixer). If the dough is sticky add 1 additional teaspoon of flour at a time until the dough no longer sticks.
  3. Press dough into a 9-inch pie pan.
  4. Chill in refrigerator.
  5. Walnut Filling: Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  6. Beat eggs and brown sugar until well combined.
  7. Add vanilla extract and Frangelico until everything is blended.
  8. Add walnuts.
  9. Bake 45-50 minutes, checking after 30 minutes. The top of the pie will “crack” and brown and become crispy. To prevent crust from burning, cover with foil for the last 20 minutes of baking.
  10. Cool pie and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  11. Take out 30 minutes before serving.
  12. Sprinkle with C&H® Powdered Sugar.
  13. Serve with Frangelico flavored whipped cream, if desired.
  14. To Prepare Frangelico Whipped Cream: Whip heavy cream in a chilled mixer bowl.
  15. Add 1 teaspoon of Frangelico to every 4 ounces of whipping cream used. (4 ounces of heavy cream will yield 1 cup whipped cream.) Whip until peaks form.
