Maple, Maple Pecan Cookies

This is an original recipe that I created to enter in a competition.
It will be one of my entries this year. ( 2013)

I just found out that this recipe is a finalist in the contest.
The judging is Thursday November  7th. I'll have results and pictures from the contest.

I use a medium cookie scoop, 1 1/2 " in diameter

It's important to use Grade B Pure Maple Syrup in the dough and the icing for the intense maple flavor

4 eggs
1 C brown sugar
1 C white sugar
1 1/2 C  (3 sticks)  butter, softened
1 C milk
5 C flour
2 tsp  baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 TBS pure maple syrup
1/2 C chopped Pecans
3/4 C Maple Chunks ( I used Shady Maple Farms Organic Pure Maple Chunks)

In a stand mixer:
brown sugar
white sugar
mix well
Add butter and mix until creamy
baking soda
baking powder
Continue mixing well

maple syrup
Mix well
Fold in Pecans
Fold in Maple Chunks

Refrigerate for 1 hour

Use a 1 1/2" cookie scoop and place cookies 2" apart on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet pan.
Use a teaspoon dipped in water to flatten the tops of the cookies.

Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes
Cool on the pan for 5 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


Put 2 cups of Confectioner's Sugar in a medium bowl
Add 1/4 C Pure Maple Syrup and 2 TBS of butter, melted.
Whisk by hand

Ice completely cooled cookies and sprinkle the tops with Maple Chunks.

Peace in the Kitchen!
