Maple Cookies

This is a recipe that Mama created for me many years ago. I am a fiend for maple flavors so she whipped up this cookie for me. It is wonderful on a cool Fall afternoon with a mug of hot cider or tea.

1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup Maple syrup
1 large egg


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
  2. In medium bowl mix flour, soda and cinnamon well and set aside.
  3. In separate medium bowl cream together butter and sugar until grainy.
  4. Add syrup and egg and beat until thickened.
  5. Add flour mixture and blend until combined. Be careful to not over beat the batter.
  6. Place dough in plastic bag and refrigerate for one hour.
  7. Remove dough from refrigerator and form dough into 1 inch balls.
  8. Place on ungreased cookie sheet (or on silicone pad) and bake for 17 to 18 minutes until cookies are golden brown.
Immediately transfer cookies to cool flat surface.
Servings: 24 Yield: 2 dozen cookies

You can add 3/4 Cup of finely ground pecans to flour mixture if you wish. For added flavor saute pecans in 1 Tbsp. Butter until golden brown.
