This recipe for maple glaze is fantastic. Not only is maple glaze perfect on these scones, you can also drizzle this maple glaze over cookies, cakes and anything else that needs some added sweetness and maple goodness. Maple glaze has only 3 ingredients, which makes it super easy to make and super delicious. When making maple glaze, use 100% pure maple syrup. Only the real deal. In fact, always use pure maple syrup, the other stuff is just corn syrup and sugar.
‘Real’ Maple Syrup
Living in Wisconsin, we have access to 100% pure maple syrup. In the spring, when the sap is running, we’re able to attend any number of maple syrup festivals or stop the two Boy Scout Camps in our area and watch the process of making maple syrup. Bear Paw Scout Camp located just a few miles from us is one such camp. The month of March for us is when we take a country drive in our quest to purchase maple syrup. We like to ‘discover’ a new maple syrup farm each year.
