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.

- 1Beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
- 2While still mixing, add the egg yolk.
- 3While still mixing, slowly drizzle in the maple syrup.
- 4In 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.
- 5Add butter mixture and mix until just combined. The dough will be in loose clumps.
- 6Gather the dough in a large ball, cover in plastic wrap and chill dough for at least two hours.
- 7Preheat the oven to 350°F Line a few baking sheets with parchment paper.
- 8On 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.
- 9Arrange cookies on baking sheets and bake for 8 to 11 minutes each, or until lightly golden at the edges.
- 10Transfer to racks to cool. Cookies will keep in an airtight container for 1 week.
