    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 300°; lightly grease two 9-inch round cake pans; sprinkle each pan with 1 tablespoon of the maple sugar.
    2. 2
      In a bowl, cream together the butter, salt, regular sugar, ½ cup maple sugar, maple extract, and vanilla; then beat in the flour.
    3. 3
      Divide the dough in half and press it into the prepared pans, smoothing surface with your fingers.
    4. 4
      Sprinkle each round with 1 tablespoon of the remaining maple sugar, pressing it in gently.
    5. 5
      Prick the dough with a fork in an attractive pattern.
    6. 6
      Bake for 35-40 minutes, until it is golden brown around the edges.
    7. 7
      Remove it from the oven and loosen the edges with a heat-resistant plastic knife or table knife.
    8. 8
      Wait 5 minutes, then carefully turn the shortbread out onto a clean work surface, all in one piece.
    9. 9
      Using a pizza wheel or sharp knife, cut each round into 12 wedges (do this while the shortbread is still warm; if you wait until it is cool, it will not cut easily).
    10. 10
      Transfer the wedges to a rack to cool.

      This is quick to put together, and is a lovely change from the traditional shortbread. Don't get me wrong....I *love* the old standby. :) I was making Maple Shortbread Cookies - Rolled Version, and since I had the maple sugar figured I might as well give this version a try too. I'll be keeping this around. Thanks for posting.
