You will need to chill the dough for an hour or two so plan accordingly. I kept it simple and cut these cookies into rounds using a biscuit cutter but you could of course cut them out into adorable maple leaves if you prefer! You could also have the kiddos decorate them but they’re also oh so elegant with just a dusting of gold sprinkles.

For the cookies:
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature

1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp maple extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

For the Maple Frosting:
3 cups powdered sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp maple extract
2 Tbsp milk

  1. In a large bowl or stand mixer, cream together butter and sugar on high. Mix in egg and vanilla and maple extract. Add flour, baking powder, and salt and mix just until combined. 
  2. Divide dough in half and flatten into disks. Wrap each disk with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a floured surface, roll portions of dough out to about 1/4″ thickness. Use a small round cookie cutter to cut out cookies. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 7-9 minutes, let cool for one minute on the cookie sheet, then remove from sheet and cool completely.
  4. To make the frosting: Beat butter until fluffy. Add 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar and blend well. Add 1 Tbsp milk and blend until it’s starting to look like frosting. Add remaining 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, 1 Tbps milk, and extracts. Add a bit more milk if you need it to get your desired consistency. Spread on cookies and enjoy!

Happy baking,
