La Grange Maple Sugar Apple Pie

Author: Canadian Living

Richard Fontaine, chef of Restaurant La Grange de St-Charles in the town of St-Charles-sur-Richelieu, Que., wedded apples with maple in this creamy sugar pie. Granulated maple sugar is widely available in Quebec and sweetens without overpowering the apples. Elsewhere, light brown sugar is a good substitute.

  • Portion size 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup packed granulated maple sugar
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter softened
  • 1 egg
  • 4 cups thinly sliced apples
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch single-crust pie shell
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Method

In saucepan, stir together sugar, milk and water over medium heat until dissolved; let cool. In bowl and using electric mixer, beat flour with butter. Beat in egg until smooth; gradually beat in sugar mixture. Add apples, tossing to coat. Spoon into pie shell; sprinkle with walnuts.

Bake in 425°F (220°C) oven for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 350°F (180°C) and bake for 40 to 45 minutes longer or until apples are tender and filling is set. Let cool on rack.
