Preparation

For the pastry shell –

In a medium bowl whisk flour and salt.

Add butter and shortening and using a pastry blender, work into flour mixture until coarse crumbs form.

Stir water and extract together then add a tablespoon at a time to flour mixture tossing mixture 1 minute using a fork after each addition until dough comes together to form a ball.

On a lightly floured work surface, flatten dough ball into a 1/2-inch thick disk.

With a floured rolling pin, roll out dough to fit a 9-inch pie plate with a 1-inch overhang then ease pastry shell into pie plate pressing firmly against bottom and side of plate.

Fold pastry under even with plate and flute. Place in freezer until ready to fill.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

For the filling –

In a large bowl lightly whisk the eggs then add butter, maple syrup, brandy, vanill, and salt; whisk until well blended.

Stir in the mixed nuts.

Pour filling into the pastry shell and bake at 400 degrees F. for 10 minutes then reduce oven heat to 325 degrees F. and bake 50 minutes or until set.

Cool completely on a wire rack before serving.

For the topping –

In a chilled medium bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken then add the sugar and maple syrup; beat until soft peaks form.

Keep chilled and top each pie serving with a dollop or two of cream.
