What a wonderful version of a sugar cookie. My dough was very sticky so I had to add extra flour ( it was very humid here) after 1/2 a cup extra was still very sticky so I chilled the dough. That worked out perfect. I thought for sure i was back at the sugar camp when these were baking YUM. They are such a simple wonderful cookies. A little crunch on the outside from the sugar and wonderfully tender on the inside. I used REAL Canadian Maple syrup. Definite keeper and one of the Divine recipes for us. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag
Definitely a contender for my cookies that I bake for neighbors. The dough was sticky so I added maybe an eighth of a cup so it was sticky enough so that the sugar would cling to it. Instead of regular sugar, I used maple sugar. They are delicious. I can taste the maple, but it is not really sweet at all which i like. My son loves maple cookies and they have passed the taste test!
We did make changes, we added 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 ounce (half the bottle) of maple flavoring, a cup of walnuts and we refrigerated the dough. We added Vietnamese cinnamon to the finishing sugar too. It took the full 10 minutes to bake. We used a 1oz. ice cream scoop to make even cookies and ended up with about 70.
