Maple Leaf Cookies

Sometimes you just are not into the Halloween thing and you just want something awesome for Fall.  Here is a great idea.

This recipe came from I love her site.
Be sure to check it out if you love amazing recipes and ideas.

Maple Leaf Cookies

1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter (room temperature)

1/2 Cup Dark Brown Sugar

1 Tsp Baking Powder

1 Egg (room temperature)

3 Tbsp Maple Syrup

1/2 Tsp Pure Vanilla Extract

1 3/4 Cups All-Purpose Flour

In your mixer bowl, mix butter, sugar and baking power until well-combined. Add the egg, maple syrup and vanilla and 'Beat Until Fluffy.' Mix in the flour and chill the dough for an hour or until easy to handle. Heat your oven to 375 degrees and line your cookie sheets with parchment paper. On a floured surface, roll the dough to 1/8" to 1/4" thick, cut with cookie cutter, place on cookie sheet and bake for 7 minutes. Cool on wire racks.

For Icing:

2 Cups Confectioner’s Sugar

2 Tbsp Light Corn Syrup

4 Tbsp Milk (you’ll need a little more after you’ve whisked in the first amount to get a dipping consistency)

1/4 Tsp Maple Flavoring

Food Coloring Kit (I used the recipes on the back of the box to make the brown and orange)

In a smallish bowl, whisk all ingredients together. Keep slowly adding milk until you get a slightly thick, spread-able icing. The icing will settle out and smooth nicely once you’ve applied it. I set aside an amount in 3 extra bowls with icing and colored it from there. I then dunked the cookies face-down, let the excess drip off and turned them iced-side-up to dry on wire racks. By all means, if you prefer, put the icing in a zip lock bag and snip off a corner for a make-shift icing bag. This icing will set fairly quickly, allow a little extra time if you ice thickly.
