I love this maple cookies recipe so much because it reminds me of home 😉 Every winter I tell my kids the stories from when I was a kid growing up in Canada, eating maple syrup straight from the tree on the cold snow. Of course, my kids are now growing up in a desert climate and have no idea what I’m talking about! Enter, these maple cookies!
These are reminiscent of snickerdoodle with a unique flavor: chewy cookies, with a deep maple flavor and are perfect for fall/winter. You won’t be able to stop eating them!
Maple is such a unique flavor, but using maple syrup alone isn’t really enough to give it the punch I like. I tried the cookies both with and without the extract since I know it’s not a common ingredient in most pantries, but I much prefer them with the maple extract.
If you can’t get a hold of any, you can (and should!) make these cookies anyway because they are delicious either way!
