We all love this recipe. It is perfect for those chilly Calgary nights when you want something sweet but you don’t want to get out of your car and go get the ingredients. Aside from the maple sugar this recipe is made with ingredients that most people have kicking around their house. It is also hella easy, especially if you have an electric mixer (just an egg beater will do.)
This recipe should make about 25-30 cookies, depending on how big you make them. But don’t expect them to last, these cookies turn my whole family into cookie zombie. All they want/think about are cookies until these are all gone.
2 and 3/4 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 cup of softened butter (this is important, it has to be soft)
1/2 cup of margarine
1 cup of maple sugar
1/2 cup of white sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Blend together flour, baking soda, and baking power in small-medium sized bowl
Measure out butter into a microwave safe measuring cup, put it in the microwave for 15 seconds (if it isn’t completely softened)
Bring out a large bowl to mix butter, margarine, and both sugars together
Use an electric egg beater to blend butter, margarine and sugars together until they are creamy
Incorporate the flour mixture into the butter mixture slowly a few tablespoons at a time. It should be similar to the consistency of play-doh when you are done
Roll the dough into small balls and place onto ungreased no stick cookie sheet. Leave room between them as they take up a surprising amount of space
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden
Let cool for at least 10 minutes or they will turn into mush
You can ice these whoever you want. With whatever icing you want. Im a minimalist when it comes to these cookies, I think this recipe is perfect.
