Macadamia Nut Pie

I love macadamia nuts. Sometimes it is a good thing some things are expensive like these nuts. I would eat them more than once a year. If I bake with macadamia nuts, I usually add them to cookies. When I first saw this Parade recipe, I knew I would eventually make this pie. This pie is similar to a pecan pie but with macadamia nuts. It is a pretty easy pie to make and oh, so delicious. I really had to share this pie since it is so rich and tempting. I will admit I added additional nuts to the original recipe since I scooped out too many macadamia nuts from the bulk bin. I felt a little awkward putting them back so I just took them all. Would you have put some back? Maybe for a snack later?
Macadamia Nut Pie
1 cup dark corn syrup
2/3 cup sugar
3 eggs, lightly beaten
8 oz. macadamia nuts
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Roll out the pie crust and line the bottom of the pie pan.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the corn syrup, sugar, and eggs.
  4. Fold in the macadamia nuts and melted butter.
  5. Pour the mixture into the unbaked pie crust.
  6. Bake the pie for 50 minutes or until the filling is set. If the crust begins to brown, then cover the edges with foil.
Recipe adapted from Parade.
