Apple and Maple Pets-De-Soeur

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 10 mins

Pets-de-soeur means Nun's farts. It's made with pie dough. It's a very good dessert. I think that it cames from Quebec in Canada.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 lb shortcrust pastry dough (store-bought, half a package of 1 lb)
  • 14 cup butter, soften
  • 14 cup brown sugar
  • 1 big cortland apples or 2 small apples, peeled, diced
  • 12 cup maple syrup


  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough in a big rectangle. Spread butter on all the dough and sprinkle with brown sugar. Distribute the diced apple on the brown sugar.
  2. Beginning with one of the long sides, roll the dough by holding tight to form a roll. Cut the roll right across (on the width) in slices of about 1 inch thickness. Put down the slices in a big glass dish (Pyrex type) and sprinkle with maple syrup.
  3. Cook in a preheated oven of 400 F for about 10 minutes.

This is very good; kina like apple pie but not as filling. I used store-bought pie crust and didn't roll it into a rectangle just prepared it round. I cooked mine for 18 minutes to get the dough cooked all the way; could have used a little longer just to brown it but I didn't want to overcook it. Made for Zaar Stars.

Nice breakfast treats and pretty quick to come together using pre-made pie crust!! I made this as written using one large granny smith apple. Mine also stuck to the pan and took 3 times the amount to bake in order to get the crust browned. I enjoyed the flavor, and must admit that I didn't have real maple syrup, but felt it could use a little more flavor, like maybe some cinnamon. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Gimme 5 Tag.

Taste is a 5+, presentation is not so good. These are just wonderful on the tongue, just sweet enough, although I did reduce the maple syrup. I did cook mine longer to get the crust nice and brown. I sprayed my pyrex with spray, but my little pinwheels still stuck to the dish. So when I tried to serve them, they wanted to fall apart. But have no fear, this didn't detract from the taste!! Because they were so delicious, and because I may have made them stick by cooking long enough to get the crust brown, I'll still rate them a 5 even though they fell apart....probably my fault!
