Maple Sugar Pie vs. Maple Syrup Pudding Cake

By Chef Lippe

Maple Sugar Pie (Canadian favorite)

The intense maple pie has few ingredients and is very sweet. I cut the pie into 12 to 14 petite servings and serve warm with ice cream and whipped cream.

Ingredients:

Pie crust (homemade or store bought)

1 cup maple sugar or light brown sugar

¼ cup flour

¼ cup maple syrup

¾ cup heavy cream

Whipped cream (optional) and Ice Cream (optional)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375

Fit the pastry dough into a standard pie dish or tart pan and bake for 15 minutes. Remove and allow to cool completely.

Gently whisk together sugar and flour until mixture is smooth.

Once the flour sugar mixture is smooth, add the maple syrup and heavy cream. Whisk until it is completely smooth. This mixture will be watery, pour into prebaked pie shell and bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees (325 for dark metal pans)

Allow the pie to cool completely before serving it with whipped cream and ice cream.
