Walnut pie

This was one of the pies that we had for Christmas Eve dinner and it was so good! It tasted like a snickers bars! Mmm. I got the recipe from my friend Nicole - thanks!!

Walnut Pie

1, 9 inch pie crust, unbaked
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup corn syrup
2/3 cups walnuts (I used pieces because that's what I had, but halves would be prettier)
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled

Preheat oven to 375. Mix together eggs, salt, vanilla, sugar, and corn syrup. Add melted butter after it cools for a bit so it doesn't cook eggs. Add walnuts and chocolate chips, if desired. Bake for about 45 minutes or until golden brown and no longer fluid. It will rise and crack on the top when done.

Sorry for the blurry picture!
