Easy Sugar Cookies with Maple Frosting (Vermont)

Vermont is known for its maple syrup. One of my favorite cookies to make is these Easy Sugar Cookies with Maple Frosting because they require no rolling and no chilling. It’s a tradition in Vermont to have real maple syrup, so please don’t use the artificial kind. We use maple syrup from the trees in our back yard.

Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Beat the sugar and the butter until creamy. You can use an electric beater if you want.
  3. Stir in 1 teaspoon of real maple syrup and the egg. Stir in flour and baking soda.
  4. Shape the dough by teaspoonfuls into balls.
  5. Place on parchment paper and flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass. Be sure to flour the bottom of the glass to avoid sticking.
  6. Bake about 10 minutes and allow to cool on rack completely before frosting.
  7. Mix the powdered sugar and real maple syrup together in a small pot and heat on low heat. Ensure there are no lumps. You can thin with milk if necessary.
  8. Frost quickly and enjoy!

    My goal is to bake all of the United States of Cookies recipes in 2017, and I decided to start with Vermont, mostly because I had all of the ingredients on hand. Overall, a nice easy sugar cookie recipe, but the maple flavor didn’t come through as strongly as I’d hoped it would. If I were to make them again, I’d try using Grade B syrup (I used Grade A this time).

    I was pretty disappointed. I thought the idea of maple flavored sugar cookies was great, but I couldn’t taste the maple at all. And even as just a sugar cookie, they weren’t that good.
