1/2 Photos of Autumn Maple Leaf Cookies

From Martha Stewart. These are YUMMY! And unlike some of her recipes, they are really easy. I make them in big batches as fall gifts (great for Thanksgiving teacher's gifts). Be sure to use real maple syrup- none of that fake junk
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Cream butter and sugar together.
- 2Add 1/2 cup of maple syrup and egg yolk, mix well.
- 3Sift in flour and salt, combine well.
- 4Divide dough in half and wrap in plastic wrap and chill about 2 hours (this makes rolling and cutting the cookies possible. If you skip the chilling step you will have a huge mess when you try to roll them out!).
- 5Heat oven to 350 degrees.
- 6Roll dough 1/8 inch thick and cut with cookie cutters (leaf shapes are the most fun!).
- 7Place on baking sheet (ungreased is fine).
- 8Bake apx 12 minutes.
- 9Cool on pan about 5 minutes and move to wire rack (leave them too long and they will stick!).
- 10To make glaze- combine 1/2 cup maple syrup and 2 cups powdered sugar (be sure to sift the powdered sugar if you don't want lumpy glaze!). You can dip, drizzle or pipe on the glaze. You can easily cut the glaze in half- it makes a lot!
