Maple Pecan Cookies

These maple pecan cookies are bursting with a delicious maple flavor, with lots of maple flavor from both pure maple syrup and maple extract. They are soft, filled with crunchy pecans and topped with a sweet maple icing. They’re such a good cookie for the fall. 


For the Maple Pecan Cookies: 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick, softened) 1 cup brown sugar (packed) 1 egg 1/4 cup pure maple syrup 1 tsp vanilla extract 1 tsp pure maple extract 1 3/4 cups flour 1 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp salt 1 cup chopped pecans For the Maple Glaze: 1/2 TBS unsalted butter (softened) 2-3 TBS pure maple syrup 1/2 cup powdered sugar (sifted) 1 pinch salt

You are welcome to leave the pecans out, if you don’t like nuts or are allergic. But personally, I love the crunchy texture, and flavor they add to the cookies! Make sure you’re using pure maple syrup, not breakfast syrup which usually doesn’t have actual maple in it. I recommend using dark brown sugar for the richest flavor. But light brown sugar can work as well if needed.
