Canadian Sugar Pie

Total Time
Prep 15 mins

People who travel, eat it in restaurants, then look for the recipe--which is almost as old as Canada. The following is made the way Madam Benoit's grand'mere taught her, though there are all kinds of recipes.


  1. Line a 9-inch pie plate with pastry.
  2. Stir soda and vanilla into maple syrup and pour into unbaked pastry.
  3. Blend remaining ingredients with your fingertips until mixture is crumbly, then spread over syrup.
  4. Place a piece of foil under pan, because the pie often bubbles over.
  5. Bake at 350 F.
  6. for 30 minutes and let cool---it is best cold.

It's maple syrup season here in Ontario (April) and I just put maple syrup on my shopping list. THIS is the recipe I will try! Perhaps with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Jehane Benoit was a renouned cook in these parts and if her Grandmother made this recipe, it must be great indeed!
