Maple Sugar Cookies

Last week I posted a recipe for chocolate chip cookies simply because everyone knows kids love cookies. This week, I think I'll post a cookie recipe every day so people can have a choice of what kind they would like to try for their little ones.

The first one I've decided to post is for maple sugar cookies. Nothing says Canada like maple sugar and these cookies are incredibly delicious. I'm sure the kids (young and old alike) will love them.


  • 2 1/2 Cups of sifted Flour

  • 1 Tsp. of baking Soda

  • 1 Tsp. of cream of tarter

  • 1/4 Tsp. of salt

  • 1 1/3 Cup of butter flavor shortening

  • 1 1/2 Tsp. of vanilla extract

  • 2 Tbsp. of pure maple syrup

  • 2 Cups of granulated sugar

  • 2 Egg yolks

Sift together the flour, baking soda, cream of tarter, and salt, and set aside.

Cream (beat) the shortening, vanilla extract, and maple syrup until well mixed, then add the sugar gradually creaming until light and fluffy.

Add egg yolks one at a time and beat well after each is added. Slowly add the sifted dry ingredients and beat until just blended.

Make Balls 1 1/2 inch (approx) in diameter and place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 F. for 9 to 11 minutes or until the edges just start to turn golden brown. Allow to cool at least two min on the sheet before removing to a rack until completely cool.
