Adapted from a recipe from the blog "Oh You Tasty Little Things..."
- 3⁄4 cup butter
- 2⁄3 cup packed brown sugar
- 2⁄3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon hazelnut extract (or almond)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 2 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips or 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon maple extract
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- enough water, to make a thick glaze (I used about 3 tablespoons)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
- Beat together the butter, sugars, flavouring and eggs until creamy. In another bowl, sift together the dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and stir together. Dough will be slightly soft. If you want a cakier cookie, add another half cup of flour. Add in chocolate chips. Stir until well integrated. Place dough on a sheet of waxed paper and refrigerate at least an hour. Remove dough from fridge, pinch off 1 1/2 inch pieces of dough and roll into balls. Set dough balls about 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten dough balls slightly with your fingers in the center.
- Bake cookies for about 10 minutes, or until the dough starts to turn golden brown. Allow cookies to cool on a cooling rack while you ready the glaze.
- Mix all the glaze ingredients together until smooth and creamy. If lumpy, use a whisk.
- Spread a small amount of the glaze on the top of each cookie.
