A friend wants to make this for a sick friend of hers as that was the last thing they talked about. She is not sure what part of Canada she is from. Her friend described it to her as pecan pie without the pecans.
My friend is from NY & has lived in CA & NV has never heard of this. The nearest thing I can think of is Chess Pie. My friend had never heard of that either.

It think it is a French Canadian thing that hails mainly from the Quebec and eastern Canada area. I would suspect that it has also filtered into New Hampshire and Vermont as well.

If you goggle Canadian Sugar Pie you will get lots of hits for recipes. You will also get lots of hits for the French translation Tarte au Sucre and French Canadian Sugar pies.

It sounds delicious. Good luck.

My DH still obsesses about the "Maple sugar Pie" he had at the "Inn of the Ancient Canadians"in old Quebec city over 20 yearas ago. (sorry I forgot the french name/spelling)

It was basically a pie crust with thickened maple syrup in the bottom (a thin layer) and whipped cream/ice cream over the top.

I just now "Googled" the recipe and it does look like Chess pie with milk added, and brown sugar instead of white. Looks good, too!

Chess pie is a southern thing. Few, if any, northerners have ever heard of it.

Dyed-in-the-wool Yankee here. I've *heard* of chess pie, but never had it and really have no notion of what sort of pie it is!

(Then again, I once went to a conference in Wisconsin with other writers from all over the country, and the northeasterners and Californians were ASTONISHED by the fried cheese balls on the appetizer menu at every restaurant! Evidently they had never heard of such a thing so familiar to upper midwesterners!)

Doris W & PP --I think the northerners are really missing something! Especially if made with fresh eggs & lots of vanilla. I no longer get to make it as if made for home I would eat the whole thing after my husband eats his ONE piece. After all the sugar & carbs Fri no one at work needs it either.
Every one-you should try it! very good & very simple to make with a frozen pie crust.

Sounds similar to shoo-fly pie.
