CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – It’s the perfect dessert for maple sugar season! Cathie Cappa, Owner & Chef of Auntie Cathie’s Kitchen in West Springfield, showed us how to make Canadian Maple Pie.
Canadian Maple Pie
1 and ½ cups pure maple syrup
1 cup heavy cream or coconut milk
¼ cup cornstarch
¼ cup cold water
1 9″ pre-baked pie shell
In a medium saucepan, whisk together the syrup and heavy cream/coconut milk.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and water.
Heat the maple mixture over medium to medium-high heat while whisking in the cornstarch liquid.
Bring this mixture to a boil and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Cook at a low boil being careful not to scorch the bottom. The mixture will thicken.
Pour into the pie shell and refrigerate until set. Store pie refrigerated.
