I love these cookies! They are soft and sweet. When the autumn weather begins to have that chill in the air, these cookies are a must on my baking list! With real maple syrup and a dash of maple extract, they have a wonderful autumn taste. The spices enhance the flavor and add to how yummy they are. If you are looking for a new cookie recipe for your fall baking, I highly recommend these spiced maple cookies. My family and friends absolutely love them! I'm sure yours will too.
With most cookie recipes, I like to add the flour to the creamed butter mixture in two to three batches at a time to ensure all the ingredients are mixed well.
As a way for the cookies to have a nice look to them, refrigerate the cookie dough for an hour before baking. This is an optional step. The cookies can be baked right away, but I prefer the way they look when I've refrigerated the cookie dough.
Always keep a close watch on your cookies while baking!...
This is a delicious and lovely fall cake that features pears. Upside-down cakes are wonderful, because they are very easy to make and at the same time look like they were made by a master chef. One of the ingredients that sets this cake apart is the addition of cardamom. If you have never used cardamom in a recipe before, I encourage you to give this recipe a chance as the cardamom in it is subtle but really enhances the flavor of the cake. If you love pears and the taste of fall spices, give this yummy pear upside-down cake a try!
