Maple Sugar Cookies

These cookies are a BIG hit in my house. They get eaten up before I can take a picture of them! Sugar cookies are expected but adding the maple turns the classic sugar cookie into a taste sensation.

1 stick unsalted butter at room temp
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
half of an egg yolk
1 1/2 cup flour
pinch of salt

Set oven @ 335 makes about 18 medium size cookies

Sift flour and salt set aside. Cream butter and sugars together till they are creamy. Add half an egg yolk and the maple syrup cream for a minute. Now mix in flour & salt. blend it all together. flatten out the dough on saran wrap (so its easier to roll out) put it in the fridge for 20 minutes or the freezer for 10 minutes. roll the dough out and use your favorite cookie cutters. You can decorate these cookies but I think they taste best plain. bake @ 335 for 8-9 minutes take them out of the oven right when the corners get golden. Now try not to eat them all yourself!
