- 1⁄4 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla or 1 teaspoon maple extract
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup white chocolate chips
- 3⁄4 cup chopped walnuts
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a large bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar and maple syrup until well combined.
- Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
- Add the flour, baking soda and salt (stir them together first only if you want to) to the butter-sugar mixture and stir by hand until almost combined; add white chocolate and walnuts and stir just until blended.
- Drop spoonfuls of dough (or roll rough walnut-sized balls) about 2” apart on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Flatten each a little with your hand, just to give them a head start. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until pale golden and set around the edges but still soft in the middle. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
Made these as a fall treat at work in celebration of Boss's Day. Doubled the recipe, using half light brown and half dark brown sugar. Followed the recipe exactly. Ofr my tastes, I may use more walnuts next time and a few less chocolate chips, but none of my workers are complaining ;)
PS. Be careful not to over mix the butter as I did in my first batch and the cookies fell flat :( Luckily the taste wasn't compromised!
