  1. This is not a pie as we know it in the States, it's rather more like a cake. Pound or grind the walnuts to a powder. Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until fluffy. Beat the egg whites until stiff. Mix the egg yolks with the powdered walnuts, chocolate, grated rind and candied peel, and fold in the egg whites.

  2. Pour the walnut mixture into a buttered and bread-crumbed pie pan and bake at 375 degrees for about 1 hour.

  3. When cooked the pie should be about 1/2 inch thick, much like a pizza. Turn it out and leave it to cool before serving
