Ingredients

  • 1 9-inch pie crust deep-dish
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream 35%
  • 1/2 cup real maple syrup preferably Medium
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • Pinch salt
  • Optional Finishing salt (like Maldons), for garnish
  • Whipped cream for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, whipping cream, syrup, eggs and vanilla. Add a pinch of salt and whisk in.
  • Place unbaked 9-inch pie shell on to a baking sheet. Pour batter in to pie shell and bake for 45-55 minutes or until filling is set, except for the very centre. (Note: Mine is usually done in 45 minutes. When done, the outer 2-inches or so will be puffy and cracked. The middle will be set on top, but jiggly. Pie will firm up as it cools.) If using a bit of salt on top, Sprinkle it on after pie has cooled for 15 minutes.
  • Cool at room temperature for 15 minutes, then refrigerate until firm enough to slice (about 3 hours). Serve cooled or at room temperature, with very lightly sweetened whipped cream.
