Canadian Sugar Pie

The Canadian Sugar Pie comes from the French part of the country and is a traditionnal dessert during Christmas and in sugar shacks in springtime… I didn’t eat one since my last trip to Canada in 2016, so almost 4 years now! Since I had some mapple sugar at home, I have decided to make some for the first time! If you don’t have maple sugar, don’t worry, you can also use brown sugar (or sucre vergeoise in France).


  • 270 g flour
  • 155 g soft butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 cl water
  • 1 egg
  • 180 g maple sugar
  • 25 cl liquid cream


Preheat the oven at 355°F (180°C). In a mixing bowl, combine 8.8 oz flour with the salt. Add 4.4 oz soft butter and combine with hands. Add the water, create a dough and shape it as a ball that you will let rest in the fridge 15 minutes. During this time, in another mixing bowl, whip the egg with sugar, then, add the remaining butter and flour and combine. Finally, add the liquid cream and mix. On a floured kitchen countertop, use a rolling pin to lower your dough and place it in a pie pan covered by a greaseproof paper. Using a fork, prick the base and press the borders. Pour the sugar mix in the pie and cook 45-50 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool down before cutting and eating.
