Maple Sugar Pie, a Québecois tradition updated

This recipe was inspired by a childhood memory of a trip my family took to Québec where we dined at a restaurant called L’Atre (unfortunately now closed) on the Ile d’Orléan. The restaurant was housed in an old farmhouse deep in a secluded wood, and we were actually taken there in a horse-drawn sleigh. The meal was traditional Québecois and the one dish that still sticks in my mind is the dessert of Maple Sugar Pie. Incredibly rich, sweet and gooey with maple syrup and heavy cream. So totally decadent.

Since winter seems finally to be coming to an end, and the maple sap will soon be running, this seems like a great time to revisit that childhood memory. Linsey has updated this traditional Québecois recipe with a lighter touch and the addition of roasted almonds to balance out the sweetness of the maple syrup.

Here’s Linsey’s Recipe
