Looking for a fun and delicious way to welcome fall? Try these Maple Cookies. I found this recipe last year and vowed that I would make them every year to welcome my favorite season. They'll make your house smell of warm maple syrup and brown sugar.
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 large egg yolk
3 cups flour
Cream butter and sugar together. Add maple syrup. Add the egg yolk. Sift the flour into the batter in small batches.
Divide dough in half, wrap in plastic and chill until firm.
When ready to make cookies, cut off small portions of dough to work with, roll the chilled dough to about 1/4" thin, and use a maple leaf cookie cutter to cut out your cookies.
Bake at 350 degrees; 8-10 minutes for small cookies, and 10-12 minutes for larger cookies.
