    Sure, they're beautiful in the fall, but maples provide wonderful taste in the spring!

    To serve four

    4 tsp. Cold Water
    1 tsp. Plain Powdered Gelatin
    ¼ Cup Egg Whites-insure that there is no specks of yolks
    ¼ Cup Pure Maple Syrup
    1 Cup Heavy Cream-chilled well, and whipped until soft peaks

    -- Place the cold water in a small microwave safe bowl and sprinkle gelatin over to soften for 2 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for about 10-15 seconds to melt. Reserve warm.

    -- Place egg whites and maple syrup in a mixing bowl over simmering water (double boiler) and stir with a whip until warmed to about 120°f. Remove from heat, and using an electric mixer with a whisk, whip until soft peaks.

    -- Add the gelatin, mix until thoroughly combined.

    -- Gently fold in whipped cream using a rubber spatula until no white streaks of whipped cream remain.

    -- Pour mixture immediately into serving glasses, or molds. Chill, garnish with whipped cream, crisp cookie, a piece of maple candy and enjoy!
