Tarte Au Sucre – French Canadian Maple Syrup PiePosted: December 30, 2012
For Christmas desert this year, I decided to harken back to my French Canadian Roots and try my hand at a recipe my Grand Maman left me years ago, but I haven’t had the chance to make it yet. It was very simple, and there isn’t much to it. My Grand Papa loved this pie after Christmas Dinner.
I’ve been eating maple syrup my whole life. My family would always find creative ways to use this liquid gold – and trust me, you can put maple syrup in just about anything!
First things first, bring the maple syrup to a low boil. Then add the cornstarch.
I used my homemade pie crust recipe. For step by step instructions, check this recipe out.
I made a mini pie for me and Justin to share as well.
And here’s the mini. It boiled over a bit, but tasted just as delicious!
It was a perfect end to a great Christmas Meal!
Grand Maman’s Tarte Au Sucre (Maple Syrup Pie)
You will need:
1 homemade Pie Crust (For step by step instructions, click here)
1 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons cold water
1 tbsp butter
Make your pie crust, and roll out to fit a pie tin. Preheat oven to 400. Boil maple syrup and water together for 5 minutes. Mix cornstarch with cold water and use to thicken boiling syrup. Add butter and mix until melted. Pour mixture into pie crust. If using, sprinkle with nuts. Cover with pastry and bake at 400 until pie is golden brown, for 30 to 40 minutes. Serve with whip cream or ice cream. Enjoy!
