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.

Yay! Finally one like my Grand Mere made!! I just couldn't remember the quantities. She made ours with just brown sugar and carnation milk. Never measured - just some of each. Thanks for the authentic recipe!!!

MAPLE EXTRACT??? I was born in Quebec city and I've never met a Quebecer who used maple extract.. ever!! Real maple syrup really isn't that expensive and sooooooooooo much tastier!
