Author Notes

This is a traditional pie from the province of Quebec. The filling is so simple, with maple sugar, cream and flour and that's it. It turns into a custardy, sweet filling that tastes like maple fudge. The traditional topping is unsweetened cream, whipped or not. This is one of my favourite pies, but I only make it during sugaring off season. Otherwise I'd probably eat it every day!
This recipe is handwritten into a recipe book I took with me when I moved away for university for a taste of home. The same recipe can be found on Epicurious, prettily served in a tart shell, but I think it's best in flaky pastry. —MaryMaryCulinary

What You'll Need
  • 1 pre-baked and cooled pie shell
  • 1 cup maple sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Whisk flour and maple sugar together and add cream. Mix gently to combine, without creating froth.
  2. Pour into baked pie shell and bake for 35-45 minutes, until just set. Cool on a rack. Serve warm or at room temperature, with (more) cream.
