What is tattoo Tuesday about?

May 17, 2016

squirrel Today is National Walnut Day.  The best way that I know to celebrate this occasion is to go to Moody’s Diner on Route 1 in Waldoboro, Maine and have a slice of walnut cream pie.

Remember – Pie Fixes Everything


If you cannot make it to Maine, here’s the recipe:

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups dark corn syrup
  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup walnuts (4 ounces), coarsely chopped
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch piecrust
  •  Directions

    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    • Stir together sugar, flour and salt in medium-size bowl. Stir in milk until smooth. Add eggs, corn syrup, butter and vanilla until thoroughly blended.
    • Scatter nuts over bottom of piecrust. Pour in egg mixture.
    • Bake in preheated 350 degree F oven for 1 hour or until top is puffed and browned. Cool pie on wire rack to room temperature. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Top with whipped cream. Makes 8 servings.

And why not get a tattoo:
