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
1/3 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
- In the bowl of mixer, or use a hand mixer, cream the butter & brown sugar
- Add the egg, mix well until completly combined
- Pour in the maple syrup & vanilla extract, mix
- Combine the flour & baking soda giving it a quick whisk to evenly distribute the baking soda in the flour
- 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
- Now, preheat your oven to 350f & you can prepare the baking sheets
- 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
- Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes . The time depends on your oven etc so check after 10 minutes.
- When done remove the cookies to a cooling rack to cool
Make the Icing
- 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.
- 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!
- The icing hardens on the cookie after about an hour or so
