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
