our start into the new school year as well as the german conversation group, we had a kick off breakfast together with all the ladies attending the classes. i had to come up with some easy and yummy idea for the buffet. of course, there was artisan bread and scones were a given, as they are super easy to make and liked by most people. and then there was that very tasty looking picture of the cardamom pastry...
i'm still hooked to the summer recipe book and liked the version they explained.

a simple yeast dough with ground cardamom added and the filling has even more cardamom and syrup, i figured the maple syrup would be perfect to use in this pastry. lots of compliments and i do feel like the maple syrup really added that additional flavor, very subtle and a bit ambiguous. the shaping was easy, creative, just knot the double layered though stripes together and put the "creative knot" into a muffin paper for baking. i brushed them with egg and sprinkled some course brown sugar, let them rise for 30 minutes and bake.

ready to serve
