Maple Syrup PieMakes 1 x 12” pie
Level of Difficulty: medium
Brown Sugar 1 cup
35% Cream 1 cup
Maple Syrup ½ cup
Vanilla ½ tsp
Makes 4 pie crusts
Cold Unsalted Butter 375 grams
Salt 10 grams
Sugar 30 grams
Flour 500 grams
Egg Yolks 1
Whole Milk 100 ml
With the paddle attachment in an upright mixer, beat together the butter, flour, salt and sugar until the butter is incorporated.
Mix together milk and egg yolk and add to the mixer while on low speed, just until incorporated.
Place the mixture on the counter and bring the dough together by smearing a little bit at a time with the heel of your hand against the counter. You’ll progressively push a little at a time from the one pile of dough until you’ve made a second pile of dough.
Cut the dough into 4 pieces and refrigerate. The dough freezes well for later use.
Use one piece of the dough, roll out and place in a 12” shallow tart pan.
Bake until lightly brown (using pie weights) at 350 degrees…approximately 20 – 25 minutes, then let cool
Beat eggs and sugar until well combined with a whisk. Add the cream, maple syrup and vanilla and continue to beat until thoroughly blended.
Pour into a pre-baked pie shell (shallow 12” tart pan) and bake at 325 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes until the centre is set.
Cool and serve with whipped cream.
