I came across this cookie recipe, and although it’s expensive to use a whole cup of real maple syrup, I had a feeling it would be worth it.
These cookies are wonderful! They’re extremely moist, and the maple flavor makes it a nice change from a typical sugar cookie.
These were a big hit with our friends, and they stay soft for several days (if they last that long!).

1/3 cup granulated sugar for decoration
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

I love anything with a maple flavor…I might make these and cut the recipe in half, so I’m not using a full cup of pure maple syrup and also not making 60 cookies…I definitely don’t need that many! 🙂
These cookies look delicious. Love the recipe and the photos! Thanks for sharing!
I love maple in baked goods. And with a full cup of the syrup in these cookies, they truly must be something else. 😉
you’ve found it. my weakness, that is. i think i should’ve been born a canadian! i’m loving these cookies.
Is it safe to say I’ve never tried real maple syrup before? haha. It’s true, I’ve only used the fake stuff since I was small! These would be a great excuse to buy the real stuff! Looks great!
Would you mind checking out my blog? 😀 ajscookingsecrets.blogspot.com
Just discovered your blog, it’s gorgeous and the recipesmake me hungry, thanks
Thanks, everyone! Yeah, these were a HUGE hit! My husband and I both took some to work, and they went over extremely well!
AJ – Your blog is beautiful! I’ll definitely add you to my google reader 🙂
they look so good, I’m sharing a link to your blog. Can’t wait to make these.
Made these yesterday…they are delicious!
I tried some without rolling in sugar, they taste more like pancakes that way. A great option, but so much better with a light sugar coating.
Thanks for the great recipe!
these are absolutely delicious. Super moist.
I love these cookies! They are now my family’s favorite holiday cookie, I even posted about them on my blog.
Thanks for sharing!
Pecans couldn’t hurt, could they?
I think pecans would be lovely in here!
ZLOVE THESE COOKIES I GREW UP ON THE REAL MAPLE SYRUP .
I’m so glad these were a hit, Kim! Once you’ve had real maple syrup it’s hard to go back to the imitation kind for sure!
My young niece and I just made these. They came out good! But I didn’t roll them in the extra sugar. They are sweet enough without all that sugar added. Also we did the whole recipe. But we made large cookies. Very yummy! Love this!
Glad these were a hit, Constanze! It’s been a long time since I made a batch of these but now I’m totally craving them again 🙂
Do they freeze well?
Hi Nicole! I haven’t personally tried freezing these but my inclination is that they’d freeze well. You could also consider freezing the dough vs the baked cookies. Here’s a great article with tips for freezing cookies: https://www.thekitchn.com/the-best-cookies-to-freeze-and-how-to-do-it-tips-from-the-kitchn-213638
