My phone..is not a smart phone..so it can't do this..in fact my phone does nothing..it's so old;)
but in an emergency..it does connect.
This is the first dessert I made for our Thanksgiving..celebrated yesterday ,Saturday ,at our daughter Mylène's home..I found the original recipe here.. at Lexibule's~
when I spotted it this summer..I thought it would be a fun addition to TG..those Feuilles d'Erable cookies are very popular here,even in my youth..they were popular..so many brands now..well..certainly more than one..
there's a nicely rich maple syrup sauce she added..from Ricardo..so I did too;)

For the crust
20 maple leaf cookies including the filling
2 tbsps melted butter..(you could add a bit)
For the filling
3 packages of cream cheese 250 grams each
2 tsps corn starch
1/3 cup sour cream
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup sugar
For the maple syrup sauce
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup 35% cream
1 tsp cornstarch
Directions..In a food processor combine cookies and filling and pulse untild you get a graham cracker crust consistency..add melted butter..
pat into an 8 inch springform pan..and bake in a pre-heated 350 F oven for ap 10.mins.
Meanwhile combine all filling ings in your stand mixer until homogenous..
Add to cooled crust and bake at 350F mid shelf for ap 45 mins..turn off oven..
Crack open the oven and let cake cool in there 3-4 hrs to prevent cracking..
mine cracked after 1/2 an hour..but I just added some crushed crumbs on top..you could not tell..
I made mine the day before and refrigereated..until we went to see them..
Wait till a bit before serving..and while the cake is at room temp..add cookies on top to decorate..
I had spun some sugar the day before..badly..but still I had it all made..the next morning it had melted away to nothing..a spun sugar expert I am not.
For the sauce bring the ings to a boil and simmer 30 secs..
I added the sauce upon serving at the table..
Thumbs up from everyone this cake.
It is sweet..I served slivers..as there were 2 other desserts..
If you are looking for a lo cal..low fat dessert for your TG..don't make this;)
PS..one box of cookies has ap 21 cookies..buy 2..because you may need extra crumbs and to add the whole cookies on top.
We had a wonderful turkey dinner with all the trimmings at Mylène and Alain's home..everyone came..
2 great apps..and a rich creamy delicious soup..
the boys regaled us with their fitness prowesses:)
How they could do push ups and sit ups and trampoline..was beyond me;)
They're adorable these boys..♥ look at the light in their sweet eyes:) Happy kids.
I hope they always love being with us until they are 80.
nana loves those walks..I love walking to get to the paths..the pretty homes..their gardens..the tire swing..the eye for detail in front of certain homes..the fading fall gardens..
but mostly the walk in the woods w/ the leaves..and the silence..
I find you can hear fall.
