A delicious maple pie, delicious served warm, at room temperature of chilled. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream. Garnish with some chopped walnuts or pecans, if you like.


  • 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


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, whipping cream, syrup, eggs and vanilla. Add a pinch of salt and whisk in.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
