This was a wonderful recipe...I made it for a friend for her birthday...and I chose this because she loves maple flavor things. She realllllly liked this...Only thing is that as I made the looked as it was very chunky paste...instead of smooth. so I put in a couple more tsps of milk...and I got the spread I needed to put it on. It definitely taste like those glaze they put on donuts!! :) Thanks for sharing this recipe!!
