Maple Syrup Cookies~



We love real maple syrup..when I read this recipe at Dinner With Julie's I knew I had to make them..


I added Callebaut white chocolate chunks..instead of the chips because I didn't have the chips..

And I had made AnnT's fudge a while ago which I had kept in the cold room(Keeps beautifully)..so I added some small pieces of that too:)



Perfect addition to an already delicious cookie.

Here is the recipe I found on Julie's blog..next I'll be making her bubbles:)

Maple Walnut White Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup pure maple syrup (not flavoured pancake syrup)
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla or maple extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup each white chocolate chips/chunks and chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a large bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar and maple syrup until well combined — the mixture will have the consistency of wet sand. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.

Add the flour, baking soda and salt (stir them together first only if you want to) to the butter-sugar mixture and stir by hand until almost combined; add white chocolate and walnuts and stir just until blended. It may seem dry at this point - I always find it easiest to get in there with my hands toward the end.

Drop spoonfuls of dough (or roll rough walnut-sized balls) about 2” apart on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Flatten each a little with your hand, just to give them a head start. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until pale golden and set around the edges but still soft in the middle. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Makes 20 cookies.

  5. Maple is such a tasty baking ingredient. Great idea to pair it with white chocolate, both flavors are so warm and tasty I bet they complement each other very well in a cookie!

  6. I'm hungry for your maple cookies. Funnyly enough that I bough a bottle of maple syrup today for the canadian breakfast that I plan these days. I think I try these cookies, too.

  12. I absolutely adore real maple syrup! I plan on racing to the kitchen to bake these this very moment. A while back I made some Maple Walnut Biscotti, which I think are just up your alley.
