Soft maple sugar cookies. Just saying the name of this delicate and delicious little cookie makes my mouth water. They’re perfect for the holidays or any time you’re craving a sweet sugar cookie that literally melts in your mouth.
I know I promised you weeks of pumpkin goodness to get us into the fall mood but I wanted to expand that and talk about maple too!
I first came across this recipe 5 or maybe 6 years ago in the Fall Baking edition of Better Homes and Gardens. I’ve been making these every holiday season since.
The first time I made them took a bite of these pretty soft maple sugar cookies I remember thinking, “Wow, these are perfect in every way.”
I’ve made plenty of sugar cookies over the years and it’s interesting how each sugar cookies recipe has its own unique flavor and texture. I am really loving this recipe because it’s both soft and crispy at the same time. The middle of the cookie is so chewy and soft and the edges have just enough crisp to make them truly divine.
Even if you’re not a huge fan of maple flavor, I think you’ll love this recipe. The maple flavor is super delicate and doesn’t overpower the sugar cookie at all. These cookies are fantastic on their own, but the maple icing really sends them over the top. I think these cookies are just beautiful and perfect for holiday togetherness. If you wanted to make them even more festive for Christmas, you could add some red and green sprinkles to the top after you drizzle on the maple icing. Chopped nuts sprinkled on top would be cute and yummy too.
These soft maple sugar cookies were such a hit with my entire family. Like I said, they really are just about perfect.
