This is a light, crisp cookie that tastes just like sugary maple syrup. The aroma that will waft through your house while these are baking is almost as good as the taste!

  • Cream the butter with the brown sugar and 3/4 cup of the white sugar. Mix in the vanilla and maple extract and beat for 1 minute. Beat in the egg until just blended. Add the pecans, mixing at low speed until the pecans are evenly distributed throughout the batter. Add the flour and mix at medium speed until the flour is thoroughly incorporated.

  • Shape the dough into 1 1/2 inch to 2 inch balls. Roll the balls in the extra white sugar. Place the balls on ungreased cookie sheets leaving about 2 inches between balls. Flatten ball to about 1/4 inch thick with your hand or a cookie stamp. Bake cookies for 7 to 9 minutes or until the edges are slightly browned. Let cookies cool on baking sheet for 1 to 2 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to finish cooling.

These didn't turn out crispy for me for some reason. I followed the directions exactly but the cookies came out chewy and a bit floury. It did have good maple flavour though. Read More

This recipe is brilliant I use it as the basis for all the cookies I make just by changing what I add at the end and they always come out perfectly crispy round the edge and a bit squidgy in the middle. Read More

It was good. My daughter liked them because she likes anything with maple. Thought I'd tried this out since I had all the ingredients on hand. These were like a cross between sugar cookies and pecan sandies. Read More

I made these cookies today exactly as described. But it had very little flavor and was not sweet enough for a cookie. Next I will increase the Maple extract to 1 tbsp increase the white sugar to 2 cups instead of 1 cup. If you want the cookies crisp place your cookie sheet on the bottom rack with no foil underneath. I also think that using a hand mixer for this recipe is unnecessary. Perhaps that is where I went wrong? In any case it's not a bad recipe but it needs tweaking. There just very little flavor and it wasnt sweet for a dessert cookie. Read More
