Canadian love their maple syrup! Making a trip to the sugar bush in the early spring is a true Canadian delight. Maple syrup is not just for pancakes though. It is made into maple sugar or candy and used as an ingredient in cooking, baking and grilling. In fact maple syrup is one of my favourite ingredients to cook with. The traditional shape for maple sugar and maple cream cookies is of course the maple leaf. A few days ago we received a package from oldest grandbaby (age 3) who had visited the sugar bush. Inside were two packages of Jakeman's Canadian Maple Cream Cookies.
