The kids are on a week-long break from school so it's no surprise that by this time I'm thinking that what I really need is more energy. It's too late to get it through exercise and good nutrition so the next best thing (maybe even the first best thing) is having a slice of Canadian Sugar Pie.
Do not eat at bedtime unless your plans involve something other than sleep. "Sugar rush" would be an understatement for the pie's after effects.
Canadian Sugar Pie
2 cups brown sugar, packed
2 Tbl. flour
Pinch of salt
1 egg yolk
1 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
In bowl, blend sugar, flour and salt. In separate bowl using electric mixer, beat eggs and yolk until frothy; beat in milk and vanilla. Stir egg mixture into sugar mixture until smooth.
Pour filling into pie shell. Bake on middle oven rack at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake about 35 minutes longer, or until crust is golden brown and filling is set. Cool on wire rack before cutting.Posted by marybeth at October 21, 2004 08:33 PM Food
