The name of this sweet treat Nun Farts is loosely translated from the French word “Pet De Soeur”. Leo was my dad’s name so there you have it, Leo’s Nun Farts (aka Leo’s Pet De Soeur)!

My dad loved these things. They are super easy to make but be warned, they are addictive! I mean caramelized Brown Sugar wrapped in pie crust. Now who wouldn’t love these Pet De Soeur treats?

Don’t be fooled by the name “Nun Farts” though. These super easy to make sugary treats are addictive. Like super addictive. If you need to watch your sugars as I do, moderation is key. Or maybe skipping this recipe completely!

While easy to make, you need to make sure you roll the pie crust as tight as possible. If you don’t they will unravel and all the delicious brown sugar will spill out of the pastry.

I also suggest you press the brown sugar into the pie crust. The melted butter will help the brown sugar stick to the pie crust. Again, this will prevent the caramel filling from spilling out on the baking sheet.

    Thank you so much for sharing. My mom would make these every year at Easter and Christmas with left over pie dough. When I was young, I went to a french school and my grade 8 teacher was a nun, I remember bringing them into school as a lunch treat one day, she asked me what they were and when I told her she laughed! She got such a kick out of it!
