Equipment

  • teaspoon scoop
  • parchment paper

Ingredients

Dough

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened 1 stick
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavor
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

Glaze

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter half stick
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar plus more is needed for thickness
  • 1/4 cup half & half or milk
  • 3 Tablespoons maple syrup

Instructions

  • Preheat oven at 300-degrees. In a large bowl, beat together butter and shortening. Add both sugars, maple syrup, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Beat for about 2 minutes, scraping bottle of bowl often. Add egg yolks one at a time, followed by vanilla extract and maple flavor. Mix in flour until just combined.
  • Use a scoop or spoon to dollop dough onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet, spacing out to account for spread. Bake for 11 to 16 minutes. Let set on cookie sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer to a rack to completely cool.
  • Once all cookies are baked and cooled, move them back to the parchment-covered pan, close together, before mixing glaze.
  • In a small bowl, melt butter in microwave. Add the confectioners' sugar to bowl, followed by half & half and maple syrup. Stir. Add more sugar, if needed, to form a thick consistency. Drizzle all over cookies. Let set for 30 minutes to 1 hour before moving to sealed containers.
