    Maple Butter, Member MmSugarCookie

    This was super easy to make and received a lot of good reviews. Wonderful on toast and bisquits., We make our own syrup and have an abundance of it, so anyone who has any ideas,,,, send them on in. I would love an old fashioned maple creme recipe like my aunt used to make when she ran the suger-bush when we were kids. Thanks for listening and have a good day
