 Ingredients List

  • 2 c All-purpose flour
  • 1 tb Baking powder
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/8 ts Mace
  • 1/2 c Soft butter
  • 3/4 c Milk; up to 1 cup
  • 3/4 c Maple syrup
  • 1 tb Butter
  • 2 Egg whites
  • 1/2 c Whipping cream
  • 1/2 ts Vanilla

 Directions

Mix flour bakig powder, salt and mace, then work in butter with fingertips.
Add enough milk to make a soft dough, knead 5 or 6 times and divide in
half. Grease two 8" pie plates and pat dough into each as a cake, not as
a pie crust. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15-18 minutes, or until brown.
Unmould and set aside.

To make filling, boil syrup and butter until it forms a soft ball in ice
water (238 degrees F on a candy thermometer). Beat egg whites until stiff
and slowly pour hot syrup on top, beating constantly with an electric
beater. If you use a hand rotary beater, pour in a little syrup, beat, pour
more, beat until all syrup is used. Continue beating until filling is thick
and smooth. Whip cream with vanilla and fold in. Spread between biscuit
layers and on top.
