Make your Black Walnut Pie Crust first.

3 eggs
1/2 cup packed light or dark brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup dark corn syrup (you can substitute light)
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2 cups pecans, broken into pieces,
plus additional whole pecans for garnish, if desired

1 black walnut pie crust

For the whipped cream topping:
8 ounces heavy cream
1 teaspoon ground ginger
2 teaspoons honey

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

1. In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla and mix well, Add the flour and mix well. Add the dark and light corn syrups and the pecan pieces and mix until well blended.

2. Pour the filling into the prepared pie crust and, if desired, top with whole pecans. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the pie filling is set.

3. Meanwhile, in a chilled medium bowl, whip the cream, ginger and honey together until the cream forms stiff peaks, about 5 minutes if using an electric mixer set on high.

4. Remove pie from oven and cool on a wire rack. When cool, remove tart pan sides. Serve with the honey-ginger whipped cream.
