There is nothing better than to spend time in the kitchen with the people you love; in this occasion, with two of my five granddaughters. We just pull out a magazine, selected a recipe and there you have it, baking time baby; and ready for the season!

In a large bowl beat ¾ cup of softened butter with a mixer for 30 seconds. Add the granulated sugar, cinnamon and beat until combined.
Beat in the egg and maple syrup. Add the flour and evaporated milk alternately beating on low after each addition only until combined, the batter will look slightly curdled. Pour into an oil sprayed rectangular (for thinner pieces) or square (for thicker) baking pan.
