Maple Brown Sugar Cookies
With the kids on summer vacation, I wanted to share a recipe you can all make together and that the kids will love! Why not try these Maple Brown Sugar Cookies as a treat this summer.
1 3/4 sticks unsalted butter
1 3/4 cups packed dark brown sugar
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 1/2 tbsp. maple syrup
3 tbsp. brown sugar + 3 tbsp. white sugar (mixed together)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a small pan, heat the butter over medium-low heat, swirling the pan often until the mixture becomes a light golden brown. Immediately remove from heat and allow to cool until semi-solid and soft. (Note: I quickly cooled my brown butter by pouring it into a large mixing bowl and placing it in the freezer for ten minutes).
Cream together the butter and 1 3/4 cups dark brown sugar until smooth.
Add egg + egg yolk, vanilla, and maple syrup, and mix well.
In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until well combined.
Roll tablespoon sized balls of cookie dough in the remaining brown sugar + white sugar mix and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes until edges are lightly golden brown. Allow to cool.
