Maple Pie

1 store bought or homemade pie crust
2 large egg whites
1 large egg
1 cup maple flavored syrup or pure maple syrup
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 400F. Line a 9 inch pie plate with pie crust. Trim crust to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate. Fold under extra crust and crimp edge. Line crust with foil and fill with dried beans. Bake for 15 minutes or until light brown. Cool crust on a wire rack for 5 minutes; discard foil. Save beans for future pastry baking. Lower oven temperature to 350F. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, using a rotary beater or fork, beat the egg whites and egg just until mixed. Whisk in the maple flavored syrup, brown sugar, flour, butter, and vanilla just until smooth. Stir in the walnuts. Pour the syrup mixture into baked crust. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. If the edge of the crust seems to be browning too quickly, cover with foil. Cool on wire rack for 1 hour. Serve with frozen vanilla yogurt or cover and store in the refrigerator.
