A few weeks ago, to really get into the festive fall spirit, my oldest son & I made some Maple Syrup cookies together to make for a special treat. They made great snacks to take in his lunch box or to enjoy after school. ❤ So excited for the Fall season and all the baking, cooking, and … well, eating!!!
We used this recipe from Allrecipes.com,
1 cup butter – softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup authentic maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
4 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
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.
They came out so beautifully!
Make sure to use a really great maple syrup – it’s healthier and the flavor is so much more intense!
