Cookie Anyone?

Maple Buttercream Cookies

* 2 and ¾ cups all-purpose flour
* 2 teaspoons baking powder
* ¼ teaspoon salt
* 1 cup (2 sticks), softened
* 1 and ½ cups, plus 2 tablespoons sugar
* 2 large eggs
* 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking powder.

3. In a separate bowl combine butter and 1 and ½ cups sugar. Add in the eggs and mix. Then, add in the flour mixture.

4. In a small bowl, stir together the last 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon.

5. Drop small spoon fulls on to a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle the top of each cookie with a pinch of the cinnamon sugar mixture.

6. Bake for 10 minutes, cookie will not be brown but trust me, it's done.

Maple Buttercream Frosting

* 1 stick butter, softened
* 1/8 cup plus one tablespoon milk
* 2 and ½ cups confectioner’s sugar
* ½ teaspoon vanilla
* 1 tablespoon real maple syrup


1. Place softened butter in bowl and add confectioner’s sugar.

2. Mix well, and then add the milk, vanilla, and maple syrup. Mix until smooth.

Once the cookies are cool. Smear a little icing on the bottom side then smoosh another cookie on making a cookie/icing sandwich.

I found this recipe via Amazing Moms.

My two cents:

They are pretty tasty.
The cookie taste like a snickerdoodle to me.
The icing needs more maple flavor in my opinion. Next time I would add a little maple extract.
They were very easy to make from ingredients that are generally on hand.
I would certainly make them again.

These will be pretty good with my coffee in the morning!
