From the Kitchen: Tarte au Sucre (Brown Sugar Pie)

Tarte au Sucre
Another traditional Quebec recipe, tarte au sucre is often reserved for special occasions, as it is rich in spite of it’s simplicity.

This version might make enough filling for two pies, actually, depending on the size pie pan you use. Some people have made it with a tart pan rather than the traditional pie pan, which practically guarantees it won’t boil over.

When it first comes out of the oven it may look a little runny in the middle and odd around the edges. Don’t worry, it should set beautifully and be tasty, tasty, TASTY! Serve with milk, ice cream, or as is.
