also known as Christmas Sugar Pie

A traditional French Canadian dessert for the Christmas season. It's on the sweeter and more decadent side of desserts, so a little goes a long way. Serving it up with Maple flavored ice cream or drizzled pure Maple Syrup makes the pie even more luscious to the taste buds. 

This is a winner for dinner after Midnight Mass along with Tourtiere!  


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 5 tsp all purpose flour (this cuts the sweetness)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk (I use 1%, but any will suffice )
  • 1/2 cup melted butter (I use Imperial sticks as they are pre-measured)
  • 1 cup - 1/2 cup of finely chopped walnuts (pecans work very well too)

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees (f) or 165 degrees (c)
  2. Mix first 5 ingredients on medium speed with hand mixer until smooth
  3. Add melted butter and nuts (the nuts are optional) and blend for 3 minutes
  4. Pour into unbaked pie shell (I use a top crust as well, but you can certainly make it without a top crust). Cut a slit into the top crust for air
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until it's set
  6. Top with Whipped Cream or Maple flavored Ice Cream

* nuts are optional
** you can easily turn this pie into miniature tartlets (similar to butter tart)

Joyeux Noel!
