Maple Syrup Pie featuring Aldi Specially Selected Products

Following on from my previous Aldi post, here is the Dessert I created using the Aldi "Specially Selected" range. "Specially Selected" products are chosen for their outstanding quality, ingredients, provenance and recipe. There are many fantastic products in the range. 

When I came across Pure Canadian Maple Syrup and Ready Rolled All Butter Sweet Shortcrust Pastry whilst browsing the range, I instantly knew that a Maple Syrup Pie was in order! I also found some delicious Cornish Clotted Cream to serve with the Maple Syrup Pie.

A wonderful Winter Pudding, this would also make the perfect dessert for Christmas. You could serve the Maple Syrup Pie with custard also. Personally, I prefer Maple Syrup Pie warm, with clotted cream but it can also be eaten cold. This dish is also completely vegetarian.

Give it a try and please do let me know what you think!!

3 tbsp unsalted melted butter

Specially Selected Clotted Cream to serve

  1. Lay out the Aldi All butter sweet pastry and fold it in half. Next, roll out the dough with a floured rolling pin until it is the right size to cover a fluted pie tin with the pastry.Using a flat edged knife, cut off the excess pastry over the edges of the tin
  2. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. 
  3. In a food mixer or by hand, beat together the eggs and cream until well blended.
  4. Beat in the maple syrup and butter and continue to beat until the mixture thickens a little but is still runny enough to pour.
  5. Pour the maple syrup mixture into the pastry and ensure that the mixture is even.
  6. Bake for around thirty minutes until the pie filling is set.
  7. Serve while still warm with Clotted Cream.
