maple butter ahead of time. It is easy to make, just cream together the butter and maple syrup, then place in the fridge for at least an hour. The longer it sits in there, the better the flavors fuse together. The recipe for maple butter makes way more than you need, but no worries, just keep it in the fridge. Maple butter can be used for lots of recipes. I even use it to saute vegetables, especially squash. Or use it to mash your sweet potatoes. It doesn't need to be used for only baked goods. You can even spread it on your toast in the morning.
