Maple Syrup Pie

My husband and I were on a trip to eastern Canada a few years ago. While in Quebec City, we ate lunch at Aux Anciens Canadiens. We had a wonderful meal followed by Maple Syrup Pie. I found this version at Epicurious. (I don't make my own pastry dough, so added the frozen shell option!)

Ingredients

1
pastry dough or frozen pastry shell
1/2 c
packed light brown sugar
2 large
eggs, room temperature
1/2 c
heavy cream
1/3 c
pure maple syrup (dark amber if possible)
2 tsp
unsalted butter, melted
creme fraiche or whipped cream

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 350ยบ F. You can use your favorite recipe and roll out dough into an 11-inch round on a lightly floured surface with a floured rolling pin and fit into an 8-inch (3-cup) glass pie plate. Trim excess dough and crimp edges. OR Use a frozen 8 inch (deep-dish) pie shell!
2
Whisk together brown sugar and eggs until creamy. Add cream, syrup, and butter, then whisk until smooth. Pour filling into pie shell.
3
Bake pie in lower third of oven until pastry is golden and filling is puffed and looks dry but still trembles, 50 to 60 minutes. Cool on a rack to room temperature (filling will set as pie cools).
