DAY 8: Maple Cookies
A simple maple flavored cookie. No frills; just a quiet, unassuming cookie.
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup real maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 tsp maple extract (optional)
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups all-purpose flour
Granulated or raw sugar for rolling
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease cookie sheet or use silicon baking mat.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar. Add the egg, syrup, vanilla and maple extract (if using). Mix until well blended. Stir 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 for 8 to 10 minutes.
Makes about 60 small cookies.
