Maple Syrup Cookies



In my fridge looms a large jug of Costco’s Grade A Medium Amber 100% Maple Syrup just waiting for this recipe, again. After a few more batches, I’ll need to make another Costco run. Maybe by Friday. Saturday at the latest. Yikes, I just ate the last cookie! Someone stop me!

Maple Syrup Cookies Printer Version
So buttery, fluffy and moist these cookies are truly a worthwhile indulgence.

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup real maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups all-purpose flour
Granulated or organic sugar for rolling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar. Add the egg, syrup and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda. Stir into mixture until well blended. Shape into 1 inch balls and roll in sugar. Place on cookie sheets about 2 inches apart and flatten slightly.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Let cool on wire rack.

Makes about 60 cookies.

I adore maple syrup, especially during these fall months. I need to get a big jar of my own! These cookies would be perfect with a warm mug of hot chocolate. I'm drooling just thinking about it. Thanks for sharing!

As a Canadian (who is living on the other side of the world but still stocks up on maple syrup)you are talking my language!!! This one I am putting on my MUST MAKE list! My parents are coming for a visit in a few weeks, what a special treat this would be to serve them.

My mother used to make a maple syrup cookie with a Hershey kiss pressed into it (like a peanut butter blossom). I haven't been able to find her recipe. I'm going to try it with these. I'll let you know how it goes! Thanks you! :)

Wow, please let me know how they turn out! I can't wait to hear. I've never thought about putting maple and chocolate together.

Do you think this recipe would work for cookie cutters if I roll out the dough thinly? I'm celebrating my first Canada Day with my boyfriend's family and want to try out this maple shaped cookie cutter I found for a homemade treat!

The Cooking Photographer said...

If you chill the dough I think it would be fine to roll it out. You might need to dust pretty well with flour, but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

I just made these last night and they were amazing. For a table of only 4 of us the try was practically empty. That good. I also added walnuts and it was a great addition with the taste of the maple.

I made these last night when my husband was out. When he woke up this morning I asked if he tried a cookie. He responded, "No... I tried three!" And that was after a huge bowl of cereal. Success! I hope there are still some left when I get home from work. =)
Thanks for the recipe!

The Cooking Photographer said...

Jessica I'm so glad! Thanks for letting me know.

I was looking for a recipe to use up some of the pure maple syrup I have sitting in my cabinet. Since I planned on making cookies for xmas, this was the perfect recipe. I'm lucky any ended up in the tin, my bf kept eating them! I was afraid these were going to be incredibly sweet, but they're perfect and soft - one of the best cookies ever. And I'm not a sweets person!

torrey said...

and by the way, I think these will be awesome with a little vanilla ice cream sandwiched in the middle!
