I love all things maple flavored and so does my family. If we go to a bakery and there is an option of maple-flavored or chocolate-flavored, I would venture to guess that all of us would take maple-flavored.
I like maple so much that my current favorite yogurt is even maple.
So, when I saw a recipe for Maple Cream Cookies in the Needlework Market Cookbook, I knew I had to give it a try.
I followed the recipe except for the frosting.
The dough is a little sticky and doesn’t come off the scooper the best.
The recipe was kind of vague on how long the cookies should be in the oven. I went with 14 minutes. They came out looking like this…
For the frosting, I modified my own frosting recipe.
1 stick of butter softened
1 8oz cream cheese softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp maple flavoring
Mix together. Add enough powdered sugar to get your preferred thickness.
So how were the cookies? I’ll let you decide after looking at these pictures of Carver eating them.
We all agreed with Carver saying that this is definitely a thumbs-up recipe.
I gave some to Craig and Kalissa. They both agreed and commented that the taste reminds them of pancakes with syrup.
The cookies are cake-like and soft. As far as the frosting goes…you could get by with a half batch if you don’t want much frosting and a few cookies don’t get frosted. I have a childcare girl that doesn’t always like frosting. If you want the cookies to have as much frosting as is shown in the pictures, you need to make a full batch.
All in all, these were a total hit and it is nice to have a different type of cookie in my recipe arsenal. We’ll definitely be making these again. I think the kids will love them this fall when I’ll let them put fall sprinkles on them. With the kiddos here, sprinkles make any cookies top notch!
