  • Pour the corn syrup into a small saucepan, and set over medium heat. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 10 minutes, or until it starts to turn golden. Stir in the walnuts, sugar and cinnamon until walnuts are well coated.

  • Place one of the pie crusts into a 9 inch deep dish pie plate. Pour the walnut mixture into the bottom of the crust. Top with apple pie filling, and then place the other crust over that. Crimp the edges to seal, and trim off any excess crust. Cut a few holes in the top for vents. Sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on top.

  • Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until the crust is crisp, and edges are browned.

Not sure what I did wrong but followed the directions to a tee. When I put in the walnuts and sugar it instantly hardened. Thinking maybe baking would help nope. Hard as a rock and you couldn't cut through the pie. But we just put the pie in the middle and ate from that. Had it worked it would have tasted good. My boyfriend called it cement pie. lol Read More

Did not turn out like I thought. The corn syrup and sugar did not turn golden and we cooked it for a little less than 20 minutes but it was so thick when we added the walnuts and cinnamon that it was almost like taffy Read More

Updating my review since my first review was not complete. I love this recipe. Carmel Nutty "Applie" goodness. I think the previous reviewer may have over cooked the corn syrup creating the "Cement". Since I didn't have enough corn syrup I created the syrup component by mixing what white corn syrup with some dark corn syrup some molasses and a bit of maple syrup and it still came out delicious. My next attempt I will make "home made" crust the store brand is a little too thin for my liking. Thanks for sharing this simple yummy recipe. Read More
