    Lennie's Note:

    Serve this very sweet French-Canadian classic with a glass of ice-cold milk; it really does help to counteract the sugar rush. In small slices, this pie is delicious.

    • 1 tablespoon butter, cut in small dice


    1. 1
      In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and milk (cream will make a richer pie).

      This is the pur laine (all wool) Quebec recipe and wonderfully good it is. Try using maple sugar for the real old-fashioned taste. The trick with this pie is to serve small helpings ...think of it more as a confection than a dessert. Cold whipped cream served with it halps to cut the sweetness though it doen't help the caloric count. Thanks for posting and publicizing our wonderful Canadian cuisine

      There might be a better recipe out there. This was definately a traditional recipe, but I found it to be grainy on the teeth. Not what I remember, and I'm married to a Quebec man whose family has served Sugar Pie at every family gathering. I'm going to hit up one of them for their recipe.
