These cookies may not look like much, but boy are they deceiving! These little cookies are sweet, buttery rich and delicious! I made them to bring over to my family’s dinner night and everyone loved them! I had to make everyone copies of the recipe, and my grandpa said to my grandma as they were leaving ” honey make sure to bring some of those cookies home for me”. So if you are a fan of butter cookies then I think you will love these too!
The recipe is out of the cookbook, Taste of Homes’s Contest Winning Annual Recipes 2006.
The ingredients are:
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons maple syrup
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- confectioners’ sugar
- In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add syrup; mix well. Combine flour and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture. Divide dough into eight portions. Roll each portion into a 9-in. log.
- Place 3 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 300 degrees for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cut into 1-in. slices. Remove to wire racks to cool. Dust with confectioners’ sugar. (I was out of confectioners sugar so I sprinkled a little sugar over the tops.)
Yield: about 6 dozen
