Woman makes a mud pie (4)


I believe the answer is:


'woman' is the definition.
(woman's name)

'a mud pie' is the wordplay.
'pie' indicates an anagram.
'amud' with letters rearranged gives 'MAUD'.

'makes' is the link.

(Other definitions for maud that I've seen before include "Tennyson poem" , "Girl invited into the garden in song" , "Come into the garden, - (Tennyson)" , "Girl invited into garden (Tennyson)" , "Old song: ''Come into the garden . . . .''" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
