Honey Syrup:
½ cup granulated sugar

¾ teaspoon vanilla

Pie Crust:

1 ½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoons granulated sugar

¾ cup butter, melted and cooled

1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1 cup finely chopped almonds
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 tablespoons fine bread crumbs
1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon speculaas spice
1/8 teaspoon salt


Honey Syrup:
In small or medium pan, add the sugar, water and honey, mixing thoroughly. Place on medium heat and heat to boiling, being careful as it foams up and can boil over.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Pie Crust: Cut shortening into flour, salt and sugar until particles are the size of small peas.
