  6. Mix in another 1/3 of flour mixture followed by remaining milk and finish with the rest of the flour.

  8. Bake 20-25 minutes until they spring back when lightly touched.
  9. Cool for 10 minutes. Then remove from pan.

  12. oz cream cheese, softened
  13. cup unsalted butter
  14. Pinch of salt
  15. tsp maple syrup
  16. tsp maple extract
  17. /2 cups of confectioners sugar, sifted

  19. Beat together the cream cheese, butter and salt until nice and dreamy creamy. Add the maple syrup and maple extract. (The maple extract gives it a luscious tan color)
  20. Set mixer on low setting and add sugar 1/2 cup at a time until light and fluffy
  21. Increase the mixer speed as the sugar blends – otherwise you’ll get a puff of sugar in your face…
  22. Once it’s creamy you can frost away! Use a butter or pastry knife to spread, or transfer your icing into a pastry bag with a large star tip attached.
  23. Sprinkle the top with a little bit of cinnamon and then the cinnamon sugar.
