Tarte Au Sucre (sugar Pie)

This is a classic French-Canadian dessert.

  • Yield: 8 servings


  • 1 cup maple sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 (9-inch) unbaked pie shell


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Combine the maple sugar, brown sugar, cream, egg, flour and butter in a mixing bowl and stir to blend.
