This recipe is from Puget Consumer Co-op. I haven't tried it, but it sounds wonderful! Be sure to use Grade B maple syrup, as it a rich, maple flavor.

Directions

  1. Beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  2. While still mixing, add the egg yolk.
  3. While still mixing, slowly drizzle in the maple syrup.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, spice/s, and salt. You can use whatever combination of spices sounds good to you, or none at all for a pure maple flavor.
  5. Add butter mixture and mix until just combined. The dough will be in loose clumps.
  6. Gather the dough in a large ball, cover in plastic wrap and chill dough for at least two hours.
  7. Preheat the oven to 350°F Line a few baking sheets with parchment paper.
  8. On a floured surface, roll out half the dough to 1/8-inch thickness and cut into desired shapes. Repeat with remaining dough by pushing the scraps back together and re-rolling them out.
  9. Arrange cookies on baking sheets and bake for 8 to 11 minutes each, or until lightly golden at the edges.
  10. Transfer to racks to cool. Cookies will keep in an airtight container for 1 week.
