Frosted Maple Cookies

November 25, 2018

Are you starting your Christmas cookies?  If so you need to try these, very simple and delicious.  Don't forget to use Goosebrook Meadows 100% pure maple syrup!  




1/2 cup shortening

1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 cup sour cream

2 tablespoon maple syrup

2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup chopped nuts



1/2 cup butter

2 cups confectioners' sugar

2 teaspoons maple syrup

2 to 3 tablespoons hot water





In a large bowl, cream shortening and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in sour cream and maple syrup. Combine the flour, salt and baking soda; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in nuts. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely on wire racks.

For frosting, in a small saucepan, heat butter over low heat until golden brown. Remove from the heat; blend in confectioners' sugar, maple syrup and enough water to achieve spreading consistency.
