Poutine glissante is basically a dumpling served as a dessert with a sweet syrup.
It is made from thick pastry, cut into squares, and boiled in water.
It is served with molasses or maple syrup, and sometimes cream.
Poutine glissante was served in Quebec at the start of the 1900s, long before poutine came to mean a savoury fries-and-gravy dish in the popular mind. It was also made by the Métis in Western Canada.
