Ingredients

  • 115g salted butter
  • 60g caster sugar
  • 175g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

For the maple sauce

  • 250ml double cream
  • 125ml maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp light brown sugar

For the filling

  • 284ml pot double cream
  • 300g raspberries
  • Icing sugar, for dusting

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/fan 170°C/gas 5. Using a mixer or electric hand whisk, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the flour and maple syrup and mix to form a ball of dough. Wrap in cling film and chill for 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, make the maple sauce. Heat the cream, maple syrup and brown sugar in a pan over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to a gentle boil, then reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes, until thickened. Set aside to cool.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a 5mm thickness. Using a 7cm cookie cutter, cut the dough into 18 rounds. Place on 2-3 large non-stick baking sheets and bake for 8-10 minutes, until pale golden. Cool on a wire rack.
  4. When ready to serve, whip the cream for the filling until it just forms stiff peaks. Swirl through half of the maple sauce. Place 1 biscuit in the centre of a plate, top with a generous spoonful of the maple cream and a few raspberries. Top with a second biscuit and add a further generous spoonful of maple cream and some more raspberries. Top with a third biscuit. Repeat with the remaining biscuits to make 6 raspberry stacks.
  5. Dust each stack with icing sugar and drizzle around the remaining maple sauce. Serve immediately.
