Maple Leaf Cookies – The Girl Creative Bakes!

Every Autumn, I pull out this Maple Leaf Cookie recipe.  Without fail, each September, these maple-rich cookies make it from my oven to my table.  They’re beautiful iced and delightfully understated when left plain or dusted with confectioner’s sugar.  I always ice them.  For the conference this weekend, I divided the icing up into several bowls and had fun whisking up some festive Fall color.

These cookies will make your home smell like a maple factory in Vermont as they bake.  The maple flavor isn’t overwhelming in the finished cookie but lends something unique and special to stand apart from other cookies in your harvest spread.  I used maple flavoring (extract) in the icing as well.  As far as the cookie cutter is concerned, I found mine at Target a few years back.  I still see the cutter each year in a nesting set at Target and Walmart both.  With Fall closing in, you should be able to track down a maple leaf cutter fairly easy.  If not, you can order one here.

    Wow, those are beautiful and I bet they are tasty too.

    Thanks for the follow, I got you back. I like how you picked the name of the Coton you took care of. I came up with Leela out of the blue and it stuck with me until it was time to pick a name for her. I was also surprised at how soft their fur is. It’s wonderful.
