Growing up on the east coast of Canada, I had the pleasure of indulging in some pretty unique dishes not typically found in other parts of the world. Growing up in Quebec, this French Canadian Sugar Pie was a popular dessert.
For the most part, this sugar pie is pretty easy to make. The hardest part is bringing the sugar to a boil and not cooking the eggs when added to the hot sugar mixture.
If you want to try another popular Canadian delicacy, you absolutely must try my Cinnamon Sugar Beaver Tails, my Canadian Nanaimo Bars or my French Canadian Meat Pie (Tourtiere) recipe. Or if you want to try another pie similar to this one, try my Cinnamon Sugar Cream Pie recipe.
To be honest with you, I have no idea what the history is on Sugar Pie. My mom was making this sugar pie long before I was born. I consulted my "Oracle" but not sure this information is totally accurate.
