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
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.
