French Canadian Tourtiere I

French Canadian Tourtiere I created by Derf2440

The true (original) French Canadian tourtiere was made with 'Tourte' a type of pigeon, hence the name. It is very tasty. Be careful not to use too much allspice

    I am so happy that I found the recipe my grandmother used when making these wonderful pies that we had to celebrate the New YeaR. THANKYOU!

    Great recipe! Just like mom used to make. It reminds me of my childhood growing up in Montreal. The cloves and allspice are the key ingredients to make it truly like my mother's recipe.
