     Well, what can I say... this has to be my all-time favorite dessert.
It is very simple to make and "Oh, so magnifique !!!"
     You may notice that this recipe was listed as May 98's Dessert of 
the Month as well. This was not an error but rather as this menu was 
selected I chose to prepare this dessert and since I opted to post the
entire menu for June's Recipes of the Month -- voila`-- here it is again.
Not that it isn't worthy of being acknowledged more than once as my
"Recipe of the Month".

   1      cup           water
     2/3  cup           maple syrup
   1 1/2  teaspoons     cornstarch
   1      tablespoon    butter
   1      cup           all-purpose flour
   2      tablespoons   sugar
   1 1/2  teaspoons     baking powder
   3      tablespoons   butter
   1 1/2  cups          apple -- peeled and chopped
     1/3  cup           milk
     1/2  teaspoon      vanilla
   2      teaspoons     sugar
     1/4  teaspoon      ground cinnamon
   1      teaspoon      butter

    In a small saucepan, combine the water, maple syrup and cornstarch. 
Cook and stir till boiling. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Add the
1 tablespoon butter. Pour the mixture into a 2 quart square (8x8x2") 
baking dish or baking pan.
    In medium bowl, stir together the flour, the 2 tablespoons sugar 
and baking powder. Using a pastry blender, cut in the 3 tablespoons 
butter till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in apples. Add milk
and vanilla, stir just till batter is moistened.
     Using a tablespoon, drop the apple batter into the warm syrup 
mixture in the baking dish or baking pan. Combine the 2 teaspoons sugar
and the cinnamon. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture over the batter. 
Dot with the 1 teaspoon butter.
     Bake in a 350F oven for about 40 minutes or till a toothpick 
inserted into apple mixture comes out clean.
