Maple Cinnamon Cookies Recipe
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 cup 2 sticks salted butter, chilled and thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup maple syrup divided
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon maple flavoring
In a large mixing bowl, add flour, sugar, cinnamon, and butter.
Mix with an electric mixer on medium speed until the dough begins to form pea-sized balls.
Add 1/4 cup maple syrup, egg, and maple flavoring and mix again just until combined and dough can be formed into a ball.
Chill dough for 30 minutes to an hour.
Roll chilled dough in small balls (about an inch to an inch-and-a-half). Drop in a mixture of 3 tablespoons sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon, and roll the cookie ball until fully coated in sugar.
Place 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Make a criss cross pattern on the cookies with a fork to flatten them.
Lightly brush the cookies with the remaining maple syrup using a pastry brush.
Bake at 325° for about 13-17 minutes.
