This is a Canadian Maple sugar pie. Although it tastes a little like pecan, the flavor is more complex and leaves everyone asking for your secret. Earl Grey tea works well with this recipe.

  • In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar. Add the syrup, butter, tea, vinegar, and salt. Whisk until smooth. Stir in the nuts.

  • Place the pie shell on a cookie sheet, and pour the filling into the shell. Bake in a preheated 450 degree F (230 degrees C) oven for 10 minutes. Lower the heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake until the center is still a bit wiggly. It will set completely when cooled, about 25 minutes. Cool, and serve with sweetened whipped cream.

i do not know what this is but it is NOT tarte au sucre. i saw it and tried it it's not bad tasting but i think you should give it your own name.

Not as super-sweet as some. I think the tea and the maple syrup tones it down a bit. Very good though! Read More
