Time to try a dessert! In honor of the just-finished Winter Olympics hosted in Vancouver, I decided to go with Canada’s culinary contribution to the series: Maple Sugar Pie. I’m pretty inexperienced at both desserts and baking, so this was definitely a new thing for me.
Maple Sugar Pie
I’m honestly not a huge fan of pecan pie, so I wasn’t sure I’d like this that much. I do like maple syrup, though, so that was promising. Turns out this is a quite easy and tasty dessert and was a hit among my coworkers who I shared it with. Smells and tastes like breakfast!
Turns out I could’ve left it in a bit longer as the deepest parts around the edge were a bit undercooked. But otherwise it turned out very well! The homemade crust was a bit tricky to get rolled out nice, but turned out pretty good after a couple of attempts. Very rich (whole stick of butter!), but simple and hard to mess up.
