Brown sugar + Maple = Priceless flavor combination.

What’s the best part about dreaming of food? When the recipe you dream about comes together.  As did this great cookie…

The recipe made 2 dozen medium sized cookies- and they went fast! Too fast. So if you like cookies, I would recommend making a double batch.

Brown Sugar Maple cookie *NEW* recipe

2/3 dark brown sugar
1 cup butter, soft
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/2- 3/4 cup flour
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tbsp. maple flavoring
1 tbsp. melted butter
1-2 tbsp. milk or cream

Cream together sugar and butter. Add eggs, vanilla, baking soda and salt. Mix until just combined. Gradually add the flour 1/2 cup at a time, mixing until combined. Do not over mix this dough. Scoop dough into medium sized rounds, and place on a cookie sheet (approx. 24) and freeze for 20-30 minutes.

Remove from the freezer and bake on a separate cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes at 400 degrees or until lightly golden. Remove from the oven and let stand on the cookie sheet 1-2 minutes longer to set. Cool on a rack until room temperature and glaze. (recipe follows)

Whisk together powdered sugar, maple flavoring, butter and milk or cream. I like my glazes somewhat on the thicker side, that way most of it stays on the top of the cookie and doesn’t fall off. Drizzle over baked and cooled cookies.

Happy Baking!
