Maple Cookies

Fall is in the air! Which means it’s time for a vacation. This year I’m off to accompany and visit friends on the East coast (Montreal and Toronto) and do some serious (I’m talking suuuuuurious)
shopping. As a thank-you gift to my Toronto host, I’m sending him a box of homemade goodies. On the menu? Chocolate chip cookies, chocolate brownies, and maple cookies.

I have a special story about these maple cookies – (of course, right? Or else there wouldn’t be a blog post…) I’ve been making these cookies for a long time – for at least a decade and they’ve always been a hit. A little maple frosting on top and you’re good to go. Anyway, during one of my many cross-Canadian moves, I managed to lose the recipe! Oddly enough, even though it’s a Martha recipe, I could not find it on the website. So after a few years of being deprived of the maple goodness, I emailed the Marthaship – begging for the recipe. “Please….” I pleaded, “I must have the recipe! I’ve tried and tested so many others….but they don’t even come close. Not even close.”

A few months go by and I receive my November 2008 MSL – and the Cookie of the Month? Maple Cookies.

Thanks, Martha.

I know, I know, it seems like a ‘happy coincidence’ right? But I think it was her way of sending her thanks to me – for supporting her all these years.

My triple-decker cooling rack. Purchased at the old workplace. Pretty pimp, right? Only a baker like me needs a triple-decker cooling rack.

I used the bronze coloured pearl lustre on the cookies. I originally wanted it to pick up on the icing detail – but I wasn’t fast enough – but I think they look pretty nifty.
