T's Maple Cookies

One of my good friends from the knot, Teresa gave me this awesome recipe for maple cookies! Chris enjoyed them so much that he ate the entire batch in one night! The dough does need to chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before baking.


3 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 egg, beaten
2 Tbsp milk
1 cup sifted flour
1 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

1) Melt butter in small frying pan.
2) Remove from heat and stir in maple syrup.
3) Add egg and milk and mix well.
4) Sift together dry ingredients.
5) Add to maple syrup mixture and blend well. Chill thoroughly, so the batter thickens, about 2 hours or so.
6) Drop dough by teaspoonfuls 2" apart onto lightly greased baking sheet. Bake in hot oven (400 degrees) for 8-10 minutes.
7) Remove cookies and cool on racks. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

Maple Frosting


1/4 cup butter
1 cup sifted confectioners sugar
1 tsp maple flavoring
hot water (to thin out as the frosting cools)

1) Heat butter till light golden brown.
2) Stir in sugar and maple flavoring.
3) Add hot water 1 Tbsp at a time till frosting is thin enough to spread smoothly on wafers.

I love the maple cookies!!! I'm glad someone made them this year since we won't get a chance to! Yours are thicker than I remember mine ever being, but they still look soooo delicious!!
