  • Beat the butter with the sugars, salt, vanilla and maple extract, until well blended.

  • Preheat oven to 350*F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper, or grease lightly.
  • Sprinkle the dough and your work surface lightly with flour.
  • Roll the dough till it's a scant 1/4" thick.
  • Cut cookies with a cutter and place on the prepared baking sheets. Sprinkle with the extra maple sugar.
  • Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Let sit on the baking sheet for several minutes before moving to a rack to cool completely.
