I really enjoyed how this recipe turned out. It was simple to make and it has a nice full flavor. The maple syrup adds just enough sweetness without being too sweet or too mapley. I reduce the brown sugar by 1 TBLS since I like things a little tart. The cinnamon and vanilla are very complimentary to the fruit flavor. I was tasting this on its own and can't wait to try it on scones or biscuits. Though it's almost 90 outside this just said Fall to me and I look forward to making it again in a couple of months.! I cut the recipe in have and used fresh frozen cranberries. Made for the 2015 Culinary Quest Quebec's Maple Sugar Shack Challenge for the Toasted Tourists. Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe!
