Single Crust Quebec Sugar Pie

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Gingerbee

This is a traditional French Canadian treat; easily assembled from a pre-made pastry shell, or from a scratch pastry. For added appeal, decorate with pastry latice or cookie cutter maple leaves. Delicious autumn desert!

Top Review by Janice Gill

This is not a true tarte au sucre. Maple extract should never, ever be used, not should nutmeg. The flour is unnecessary and the cooking temperature is too low. there is an execellent Tarte au sucre recipe in the recipezaar files and I suggest that those interested should try it.
