Maple Syrup Jelly

1. In a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over 60 ml (1/4 cup) of water. Let it bloom for 5 minutes.

Crumble

1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a food processor, pulse the flour, brown sugar and salt until combine. Add the butter and rum and pulse briefly until the texture is crumbly. Sprinkle on the cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes, stir and bake an additional 7 minutes until it is golden brown. Allow tocool completely.

Whipped Cream

1. In a bowl, whipped the cream with the syrup until soft peaks form. Add the sour cream and whip an additional 30 seconds.

2. Note Prepare the cream at the last moment; it is not a very stable cream due to the amount of liquids.
