Maple Syrup Pie

Carolyn Haas


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!)

25 Min


2 Hr 30 Min




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

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!
Whisk together brown sugar and eggs until creamy. Add cream, syrup, and butter, then whisk until smooth. Pour filling into pie shell.
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).
