Maple Sugar Cookies

Phew!  What a weekend!  Saturday I cooked, carved and froze our Christmas turkey.  I made mashed potatoes and turnip for both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and froze them.  Sunday I made the gravy and dinner rolls.  And I baked!!!   I made my Cherry Surprise and these Maple Sugar Cookies and I am pooped!

I have an awful cold from somewhere which has thrown a bit of wrench in things.  It meant that Kim and I couldn’t have our Baking Day because I didn’t want to end up giving it to her right before Christmas!  But I still managed to get a lot done, at least it feels like it. And Kim did some baking on her end that she will also post about! Now I can type up the posts for all of what I made!

I will try to get the posts typed up for this week!

Here are the ingredients I used…. at least I hope I have them all in the picture.

I began by creaming together the sugars and butter in the bowl of my stand mixer.

Then I added the egg yolk and mixed that in.

Next I added the maple syrup and mixed until that was well combined.

And finally I added in the flour and salt and mixed until it was just combined.

I rolled out the dough into balls, I used about a tablespoon for each ball, and then flattened them a little bit.

Next I pulled out the cute Gingerbread cookie press I got in my stocking last Christmas to imprint onto the patties.

Then I put the pans in the fridge for an hour to chill.

Once they were done chilling, I baked them at 325 degrees for 15 minutes. What a smell!

Then I let them fully cool and put them in freezer bags until it’s time to make up our cookie trays!
