What Happens When Maple & Punkin' Cross Paths????

Updated: Mar 28, 2019

In the Fall we can't get enough punkin' spice or maple flavor. It just makes us feel like kids again, all those warm and toasty tastes together--like a punkin' pancake with maple syrup oozing all over it.

So I have mashed them up and brought you "Punkin' Maple Lovin' Lush." My mom used to make a dessert like this called "Lucky to get a bite." But this is an all new take. It's smooth, silky, spicy, crunchy and "Honey just the perfect mouthful."

When you read the recipe, it may look long and complicated to make, but trust me, its not. Just give it a shot, and I promise your guests will thank ya.
