Description

Say goodbye to boring baked goods and try something a little different, like this tasty glazed maple cookie that’s both sweet and salty.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp + 2 Tbsp coarse sea salt, divided
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups pure maple syrup, divided
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and 1 teaspoon salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fit with a paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  4. Beat in 1/2 cup maple syrup and the egg yolks. With the mixer on low, beat in flour mixture.
  5. Using a tablespoon scoop, drop batter 3 inches apart onto baking sheets. Using a flat-bottomed glass dipped in flour, flatten cookies to 1/4-inch thickness.
  6. Bake 12-15 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through, until they are golden brown around the edges. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
  7. In a medium bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, 1 cup maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
  8. Spoon the glaze over the cooled cookies. Sprinkle each with a little salt. Let sit at room temperature until the glaze is set.
