Maple Peanut Butter Cookies

Maple Peanut Butter Cookies created by Jessica K

These are like traditional peanut butter cookies, but unique in that they are flavored with maple! This was Judith Korbey's of Methuen, Massachusetts contribution to the 1958 Pillsbury Bake-Off. I got the recipe from the 50th Anniversay Best of the Bake-Off Cookbook.

    Is the sugar to roll the cookies in?

    My family has a tradition of putting peanut butter on waffles and pouring real maple syrup over it. So good! So I had to try this recipe when I found it. These are much better than a plain old peanut butter cookie, but I wanted even more maple flavor. Next time I'm going to roll these in maple sugar before baking.

    This is just a wonderful recipe. I made bigger cookies (24) and they turned out great. I'll probably add nuts next time (pecans or cashews) just because I love nuts... Thanks for this Roosie!

    Lets just say that my eyes rolled into the back of my head just tasting the batter!!! Amazing cookies-I would rather eat peanut butter cookies this way then the " old" way. Thank-you so much for sharing this now most treasured recipe.

    These were excellent cookies, and easy too. I used light maple syrup and egg whites and they were still fine. They would be good with raisins maybe, or something else to add more texture.
