Recipe by Donna Corbin
This is one of my dad's favorite cookies that I make for Christmas every year. They are not an overpowering maple but you can definitely tell they are maple. For the Maple Frosting, see the other recipe I have listed called, you guessed it, Maple Frosting.
- 3⁄4 cup butter
- 3⁄4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons maple flavoring
- 2 cups flour
- maple frosting
