Spiced Maple Cookies

November 17, 2017

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.

Bon Appetit!



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!  Ovens vary in temperature.  I start looking at may cookies when they have been in the oven for 8 minutes.  I remove them when they are just beginning to brown.


I also like to rotate my cookie sheets half way into baking time - to ensure even baking.

Preparation time is 20 minutes.  Total time is 50 minutes.

  • 2 cups sugar

  • 1 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 cup real maple syrup

  • 1/2 teaspoon maple extract, optional

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 3 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 4 1/2 cups all purpose flour



In a large bowl, cream the sugar, butter, and eggs.  Add the syrup and beat until fluffy.  Add the cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, salt, baking soda, and flour; mix thoroughly.  Shape the dough into walnut-sized balls of dough.  Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 11 to 12 minutes.


Cookie dough can be made ahead and refrigerated for up to one week.  Approximately makes 4 dozen.
