2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 dash ground nutmeg

1. In a medium bowl, beat together butter, sugar, cinnamon & nutmeg until
light & creamy.

Fresh Strawberry Syrup

3 quarts fresh strawberries, washed and capped
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup

Slice the strawberries. Mash the berries in a shallow pan, using a
potato masher or fork. Pour the berries through a wire-mesh strainer,
lined with 2 layers of cheesecloth, into a bowl. 

Press berry pulp with the back of a spoon to squeeze out 2 cups of juice. Discard pulp.

Combine strawberry juice, sugar, and corn syrup in a medium saucepan.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer (uncovered) for 20 minutes.
Stir frequently. Remove from heat and skim off foam. Let cool. Cover and
store in the refrigerator.

This syrup is good for 10 days.
Yields 1 3/4 cups.

Serve with cheesecake, fruit, yogurt, pancakes, waffles and so on.

Homemade Maple Syrup

~~Homemade is always better in my opinion no matter what you're cooking~

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring or extract

Combine granulated and brown sugar in a saucepan. Add salt and water.
Bring mixture to a boil. Remove from heat. Add maple flavoring or
extract. Cool and serve.

NOTE: Use any combination of granulated and/or brown sugar as long as it
is two parts sugar to one part water.
