Maple-Cranberry Syrup Recipe – Plus Batch Cooking Plan (and my Thanksgiving Plan)

I figure…while I’m in the kitchen this week, I might as well double up on some things…like pancakes and cookie dough. But before we get to the doubling and the batch cooking, let’s chat for a minute about the really important part of this week’s kitchen activity.  Thanksgiving sides and desserts.

My mother-in-law is hosting the feast this year…so I’ll be bringing sides and a pie.  Here’s what I’ll be hauling over.

Well, maybe not hauling. She lives just down the road. And none of these dishes are real heavy! 😉

Batch Cooking Plan

Maple-Cranberry Syrup


  • 1 14 oz. can whole cranberry sauce ($.58) with sale and store coupon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (free from Amazon and Swagbucks)
  • 1/4 cup milk ($.03)


  • Dump all ingredients into a bowl and whisk until well combined.  If you want a thinner syrup, add more milk and/or maple syrup.

  • Also, a fabulous way to use up any leftover cranberry sauce after the big feast!

Cost $.61 plus the pancakes

    How do you make the cheesecake dairy free? I saw the recipe but it calls for cream cheese. Do you just leave it out? Is there something else you put in? Thanks.

    So going to make the gingered carrot coins (if I have any carrots leftover from making the turkey and whatever else.
    I bought fresh cranberries from the store. Do you think maybe I could just boil them with a little water with some sugar until they break down and then add the other ingredients?
    This would go great with our family pancake tradition.

    I had all the ingredients to make the cranberry maple syrup, so I whipped some up for our regular Wednesday breakfast of pancakes. I thought the combination of ingredients was . . . not something I would have thought of . . . but it is delicious! If my kiddos don’t eat it, I will!
