  • 2 1/2 cups finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted, cooled
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

    In medium bowl, mix walnuts, brown sugar, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and the cinnamon. Pour and evenly spread 1/4 cup of the cooled melted butter over bottom of pie crust. Spread walnut mixture evenly over butter. Drizzle another 1/4 cup butter over nut mixture.

    Top with second crust; seal edge and flute. Cut large slits in several places in top crust for steam to escape. Drizzle remaining 1/4 cup butter evenly over top crust.

    Remove pie from oven; place on wire rack. Slowly pour hot honey mixture evenly over top of hot pie, making sure it seeps into slits in top crust. Cool at least 3 hours before serving.
