“I had the most amazing sugar pie in Quebec City, Canada at a restaurant called the Cochon Dingue. (The Crazy Pig). Their version is custardy versus the soft-fudgy/brown sugar ones that are a regional specialty. The pie tastes better if made 1 night (or more) before serving. Good luck on having it around for that long! Serve topped with creme fraiche, if desired.” - by CTREYNARD
Original recipe yields 1 9-inch pie
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Place the pie crust in its plate in a large, shallow baking pan lined with foil in case of a boil-over.
- Bring maple syrup to a boil in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, to reduce syrup down by about one-quarter. Stir in cream, bring the mixture to a simmer, then remove from heat.
- Whisk egg yolks and egg together in a large bowl. Very gradually add the cream mixture to the eggs, about 1/4 cup at a time, whisking constantly. Stir in salt, vanilla extract, and vinegar. Pour the batter into the prepared pie crust.
- Bake until the pie is mostly set but jiggles slightly when moved, about 1 hour. Let cool before serving.

"I'm disappointed with this recipe. I was hoping to love it and i prepared it with a friend here. The mixture was really odd-tasting. I am from Quebec and have had maple-cream pie for years from my ..." See moregrandmother. I think the ratio of sweet and salt + vinegar is way off. Is it just me? I turned out with a way salty pie :("
