4: History of Le Tarte au Sucre | Sugar pie is a typical dessert in both Canada and France, but especially in Canada. In France the main base is more of a sugar, while in Quebec maple syrup is more traditionally used. Some argue that it than makes it a "maple sugar pie", but it is still referred to as Tarte au Sucre. The pie in Canada is also much deeper, with about an inch or more of the filling substance (either sugar or maple syrup.)
