Being from Quebec, I've tried many sugar pie recipes and this one's definitely a winner! I made the recipe with no changes and my whole family raved about it on New Year's day. My mother, who's French Canadian, and has been making sugar pies all her life asked for the recipe!

I grew up in Montreal, Quebec. I have tasted more Tarte au Sucre than I can possibly say... This is by far the best and easiest one. Small pieces though! It's lethally sweet! (and that is a good thing!)
