Glazed Maple Cookies

These cookies would be really tasty any time of year, but the autumn flavors jumped out when I spotted this recipe. They are sophisticated shortbread cookies with the addition of the maple glaze. This recipe was adapted from Everyday Food.

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups pure maple syrup
  • 2 large egg yolks
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (preferably on convection), with racks in upper and lower thirds. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in 1/2 cup maple syrup and egg yolks. With mixer on low, beat in flour mixture.
  2. Drop batter by tablespoons (preferably with a cookie scoop), 3 inches apart, onto baking sheets. Using a flat-bottomed glass or dry measuring cup dipped in flour, flatten cookies to a 1/4-inch thickness.
  3. Bake until golden at edges, 12 to 15 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool. While the cookies are still warm, use a spoon to make an indentation for the glaze.

 

4. In a small saucepan, simmer 1 cup maple syrup until reduced to 3/4 cup, about 6 minutes on a small burner. Spoon over cookies.  Lightly sprinkle with coarse salt to enhance the maple flavor.
