We're having a sort of faux-Thanksgiving this year with a few families with connections to the USA. I'm bringing a few kinds of homemade ice cream to go with the pumpkin pie - probably butterscotch pecan with caramel ripple, maple and wet walnut, and French vanilla (or cinnamon; not sure yet).
The maple walnut ice cream uses about a cup (gulp) of real maple syrup, so I'm going to splurge on a big jug of the baking-grade stuff. So while I'm at it, are there any other really delicious maple syrup-containing recipes I can make? Cupcakes, maybe, or cookies? Nothing too desserty like cheesecake or pie, that's taken care of; more like something to nibble on after the meal? I've made recipes before where the maple flavour has baked right out, which is very disappointing; I want something where the flavour really shines through. Anyone?
