This recipe was created from an old recipe. I added nuts to the crust. I also added maple syrup and butter to the filling. I topped it off with a white chocolate maple drizzle. Enjoy!

  3. Make the filling. In a sauce pan. Combine all ingredients together except for the nuts,and vanilla. Stir and cook over high heat until boiling. Reduce heat to medium high.Stir until the mixture gets thickened. This should take about 7-10 minutes.
