Since I am leaving on holiday on Thursday night I had to get one last batch of Christmas cookies in. I love Christmas baking and this year I felt like I was very tame compared to previous years but I still managed to get three different batches of holiday cookies out before I left. If you love traditional shortbread cookies and maple syrup (like I do!) you'll really like these! The ingredients list is so short and sweet, you will be making these more than just at Christmas time. Below is the recipe and process to make these delicious cookies. I think they're best enjoyed with a glass of Eggnog while watching The Holiday or Love Actually (my two favourite Christmas films.)
Recipe for Cookies:
- 2 cups flours
- 2/3 cup icing sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup butter
Recipe for Glaze:
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup icing sugar
1. Mix dough together. Roll into two separate balls and wrap in cling film. Chill in fridge until firm (I left mine in for the afternoon while I was out running errands.)
2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and remove balls from fridge. If they are too hard just leave out for half an hour so they are easier to roll.
3. Roll out to about 1/4" thick. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
4. Remove from oven and let cool before you glaze. Then enjoy!
