Spiced Maple Cookies

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.
