French Canadian sugar pie

1 cup medium packed dark brown sugar
1 tbsp flour
200 ml whip cream (less than 1 small container)
1 pie crust

Mix brown sugar, flour and whip cream well in a bowl then pour into the pie crust.

Bake at 350 F for 45 minutes-60 minutes (closer to 60 minutes most likely).

“Since this is an old-style recipe from the wood stove era, there is no specified amount of time to bake the pie. It will take between 45 and 75 minutes depending on your oven and depending on the ratio of ingredients. A pie with a little more flour than usual will take less time, one where there a bit more cream will take longer. Your baking time will vary from pie to pie.

To check if the pie is fully baked, start checking it at around 45 minutes. The pie filling will start boiling from the outside and move toward the middle. It will first boil with large bubbles which will gradually disappear to be replaced with small tight bubbles. When the entire surface is bubbling with these tight bubbles and the edge of the filling is starting to dry up, the pie is ready. A good test is to shake the pie back and forth a bit. If the center is still liquid, it needs to bake some more. When shaking produces a movement that looks like soft pudding, it’s ready. The pie I baked for this instructable took 65 minutes.”
