Brown Sugar Pie

This is a very traditional pie served in eastern Canada around the holidays called ‘tarte au sucre’.  Believe it or not, vanilla ice cream is served with the pie to ‘cut through the sweetness’!  Bon Appetit!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 tsp. butter, softened
  • 1 tbs. flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. maple extract
  • 2 – 8″ pie crusts

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Bring the milks, brown sugar and butter to a simmer over medium heat.  When small bubbles form at the surface, cook for 2 minutes.
