Maple syrup tart recipes requested - ATTN: Montreal/Quebecois hounds

All -

The family and I just got back from a swell trip to N VT that included in part a day trip to Montreal. For a second year in a row we made a bee line for the Jean Talon market and devoured several excellent treats among them a maple syrup tart. We were first introduced to this delicious dessert at L'Express.

I'd like to ask if anyone has a maple syrup tart recipe they can share? I've looked online and have found some but they don't look all that good.

My thanks to anyone who's willing to share!

  1. Not exactly on point, but perhaps of interest, is this maple/walnut pie.

      I don't live in Quebec - I live in Ontario...I use a recipe that is more than 50 years old....
      Maple Syrup Butter Tarts
      2 large eggs
      1 c. brown sugar
      2 tsp white vinegar
      1/4 tsp. salt
      6 tlbs melted butter
      1/2 c. "REAL" maple syrup - NOT corn syrup
      Chopped Nuts - Raisens - or you can leave them plain.
      Beat the eggs only until well blended - add br. sugar, vinegar & salt...mix together - add maple syrup & melted butter. Divide filling evenly between - 18 pastry lined muffin tins...I usually bake them at 375 - for about 10 minutes - and often tent them with foil for another minute or 2...I just keep a watch on them.
      I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does.
      If you bake these - let me know what you think.

    2. If you Google 'tarte au sucre', you will find a wealth of recipes to explore...though I will say that the only reason I am suggesting that is that Eaglelake just beat me to the punch with that recipe from Ontario. I am also originally from Toronto and got that recipe from a pal of my Mom about 55 years is my 'go to' fave for this rich dessert whether in pie or tart form!

        Tarte au sirop d'erable from Jehanne Benoit a well known Quebec cook. She had shows in both French and English
