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. ;-)

Ingredients:  
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 Tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons cold butter
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Tools:
  • Medium Bowl
  • Measure cup and spoons
  • Spoon to stir 
Preparation:

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

Using a fork (or your fingertips), cut the butter into the flour mixture until there are no lumps. The texture should resemble bread crumbs. 

Combine the milk and vanilla in a cup. Stir.  

Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the milk/vanilla all at once. Stir just until all of the dry mixture is absorbed.

ooooh... it IS! It reminds me a little of Pecan Pie. lol... I cheated on Atkins big-time yesterday. ;-P~

You, my Canadian friend, shouldn't be a stranger to Sugar Pie... but are you?
I've heard of it, but I've never had it. I think its more popular in the east?

(Clearly not an Atkins friendly dessert. ;P)
bajablue (author)  canucksgirl2 years ago
lol, I'm geographically-challenged.

If Quebec is East of you, the answer is "yes". ;-D
LOL... yes.

If I was California, Quebec would be Florida. ;P
I'm on the west coast. (aka, the best coast).
bajablue (author)  canucksgirl2 years ago
;-D I'm on the best coast, too! ;-D
