Iced Maple Syrup Cookies

Every time we go to visit our kids and grandkids I take cookies. I have been doing this for years. This trip I am taking Iced Maple Syrup Cookies as well as other ones!

The grandkids always want the same cookies Martha Stewarts Chocolate Chip Cookies & Lemon Sprinkle Cookies ( I leave out the lemon for them & they are just as good!). I also take kamish sometimes Goldies Kamish and various other cookies. This time I wanted to bring something new so I thought Iced Maple Syrup Cookies might be a great idea!

I looked up recipes & found this one from Sally’s Baking Addiction. Maple Brown Sugar Cookies The recipe adds walnuts which I omitted as well as the maple flavored extract. My cookies have a delicious maple flavor.

These Iced Maple Syrup Cookies & delish!

Make sure you use pure maple syrup and not pancake syrup for this recipe!!

Here is the recipe



1/2 cup softened butter, I use salted butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1/3 cup maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 1/3 cup flour

1 tsp baking soda


2 tbsp butter

1/3 cup maple syrup

1 cup icing sugar


Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper

Do not preheat your oven now, this dough has to chill so you will preheat the oven after

  1. In the bowl of mixer, or use a hand mixer, cream the butter & brown sugar
  2. Add the egg, mix well until completly combined
  3. Pour in the maple syrup & vanilla extract, mix
  4. Combine the flour & baking soda giving it a quick whisk to evenly distribute the baking soda in the flour
  5. Spoon the flour/bakoing soda into the mixing bowl & mix until all of the dry ingredients are incorporated into the wet ingredients. Scrape down the sides & bottom of the bowl as needed. When the dough has come together & s smotthe remove the bowl. Cover & chill in the refrigerator for 20-3- minutes
  6. Now, preheat your oven to 350f & you can prepare the baking sheets
  7. When the dough has been chilled, spin it onto the prepared baking sheets. I used a 2 tbsp cookie scoop. Love room between cookie balls to allow for spread
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes . The time depends on your oven etc so check after 10 minutes.
  9. When done remove the cookies to a cooling rack to cool

Make the Icing

  1. Using a saucepan, melt the butter in the maple syrup giving it a stir. When the butter is melted, add the icing sugar & mix to combine.
  2. Drizzle over the cooler cookies but do it quickly! I found hat this icing stiffened up fast & I actually put the saucepan on the heat again to gently soften to up!
  3. The icing hardens on the cookie after about an hour or so

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
