There are many traditional ways and recipes for making a maple syrup pie.
This is how it is made in Canada with fresh tapping of the maple trees(April)for maple syrup, this is when it so rich and creamy.
Don't be alarmed if you are not in Canada in April,for the tapping the trees. This recipe makes a delicious pie.
Creamy and not to strong of a maple flavor. Delicious!!
Actually you can make it with the best maple syrup you can buy.
It is one of the best recipes around.
A real tasters delight!
