Well, Thanksgiving is officially over. I don’t know about you, but I’m still stuffed. So much good food over this weekend. I hosted Thanksgiving for the first time (yikes!!) but everything went off perfectly. (My Trader Joe’s turkey was delicious – very moist and juicy.) But, one of the highlights of this weekend’s culinary experience were a cookie recipe I found on Pinterest.
On Monday, I threw together a batch of these delicious Maple Sugar Cookies, courtesy of www.thirtydayshomemade.com. Maple is my husband’s favorite flavor so it was kind of a no-brainer to give these a try.
The recipe is pretty simple – a basic sugar cookie with a splash of real maple syrup. Yes, you have to get the good stuff, but it’s so worth it. I made three dozen cookies and froze the rest of the cookie dough for Christmas.
Here’s how they turned out:
The verdict from my Thanksgiving guests – huge thumbs up! The maple flavor is subtle but enough to amp up your average sugar cookie. I will say that the recipe makes a whole lot of icing, so I might cut it in half and make a little more if I need it.
So, if you need a delicious cookie for presents or a cookie exchange, give these a try!
