  • 1/4 c real maple syrup
  • 4 1/2 c unbleached flour
  • Turbinado or Maple Sugar for sprinkling

Maple Glaze

  • 2 1/4 c powdered sugar
  • 1 t pure and real maple extract
  • 3 T milk or more if needed

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl fitted with the paddle attachment beat butter and brown sugar on medium high speed until smooth and light in color.
  2. Beat in egg yolk and maple syrup until combined.
  3. Add flour and stir in gently. Cover mixer with a towel and continue mixing until flour is beat in. (The towel prevents the flour from flying everywhere.)
  4. Turn out dough onto  lightly floured surface and roll into one log about 2 inches in diameter. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate until firm or overnight.
  5. Preheat oven to 350. Line baking sheets with parchment. Slice rounds about 1/2′ thick. Place 1 inch apart on cookie sheet.
  6. Brush tops with beaten egg and sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Take cookies off of sheet and let cool on wire rack.
  8. When cool these may be stored in a sealed container or a zip lock bag for up to 4 days. They may also be placed in the freezer.
  9. If you choose to glaze the cookies, combine the powdered sugar, maple extract and milk in a small bowl. Whisk until smooth. Dip each cookie into glaze and place on a wire rack until glaze hardens. Sprinkle with additional maple or turbinado sugar.
