Sugar pie is a decidedly Eastern Canadian thing. Most western Canadians have never heard of it. Most western Canadians don’t know that there are different kinds of maple syrup either, but that’s ok.
Sugar pie is the sweetest dessert you will ever have. Seriously, I challenge you to find a sweeter dessert. My daughter can’t stand it, my son will eat any dessert put in front of him and then there is Robert. Robert looooooves sugar pie. He would probably marry it if he was given the chance. While Robert says my sugar pie is very good, he says it is not as good as his mothers – he’s a good son.
Without futher adieu, here it is: (Not Robert’s mom’s) Maple Sugar Pie.
