Maple Sugar Cookies

It might seem like a strange time of year to be craving maple baked goods but I find when the leaves begin to fall from the trees I look forward to making a batch of Maple Sugar Cookies.  Sweet and crunchy these cookies go fast on a holiday table.  Cut leaf shapes and colour icing as desired.

INGREDIENTSMaple Sugar Cookies

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 tbsp maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla

ICING

1 cup icing sugar

1/4 cup maple syrup

DIRECTIONS

Blend flour, baking powder and salt together in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl mix butter and brown sugar together until well combined.  Add beaten egg, maple syrup and vanilla.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until well combined.

Roll out sheets of dough and cut shapes from the dough.  Transfer to greased cookie sheets.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown.

While cookies are baking prepare frosting.  Mix icing sugar and maple syrup together until smooth.  Add food colouring if desired.
