Sugar pie is a dessert in northern French and Belgian cuisine, where it is called tarte au sucre. It is also popular in Canada.

Various type of tarte au sucre are made. Some are a leavened dough topped with beet sugar or brown sugar, others have a crust containing a homogeneous sugar mixture which is similar to caramel after baking. The French Canadian version of the dessert sometimes uses maple syrup.[1]

The dessert is somewhat similar to the American transparent pie (the name in the Midwestern and Southern United States for a pecan pie made without the pecans), the English Canadian butter tarts and the English treacle tart.
