This rustic French-inspired dessert promises to indulge the absolute sweetest of teeth.

Sweet grand-père dumplings are tucked into a traditional Quebec Sugar Pie for a decadent, dulcet and divine duet of flavors.  Drizzle each warm slice with luscious sour cream (or sugar) sauce and a sprinkling of almonds as garnish. 

This pie is sinfully sweet, so keep the slices small.  Serve with a glass of ice-cold milk or a steaming cup of coffee for the perfect ending to any meal.

Very special Thanks to thorswolf who published their personal recipe for Old-Time Quebec Sugar Pie back in July 2011. Their pie recipe, along with member comments, are what inspired me to create this unique version. ;-)

Step 1: Make the Sugar Pie filling

  • 1- 9" Unbaked Homemade Pie Crust- Your favorite!
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1- 12 oz can evaporated milk- UNsweetened
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Sauce pan (preferably a Skillet) with a fitted lid
  • Measuring cup and spoons

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Combine flour and sugar in the pan.  Mix well (you may use your fingers ;-) until combined.

Stir in the milk, butter, salt and vanilla.

Set aside while you prepare the sugar dumplings.
