Old Fashioned Sugar Pie~
When I was a little girl..we went to an old cottage a few times in Ste-Émilie-De L'Énergie..this is..ap 50 yrs ago..I don't remember much about it..but I remember practicing my ballet back bends..we used to bring my soft pink leather ballet shoes..the flat ones at that age.. all smooth..with the strap.. having a big bear on the front porch that scared my mom..at night.. and a delivery truck that brought freshly made sugar pies from the local bakery~
I make them rarely..but I like to have one around Easter..
It brings back memories of those fun carefree days with old swinging porch doors and crickets at night.. sugar pies and fireflies~
1 1/4 cups of cream..(should be heavy cream..I only had half and half)
1/4 cup of milk..(I used a bit of pure maple syrup because it is that time of year)
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
pinch of salt..
I blind bake my crust just a bit..it's a habit of mine..I don't love soggy bottoms..
Add well blended ingredients and bake for ap 30 mins at 400..
Check your ovens.. You will know when it is ready..serve room temp~
And Bon Appétit~
