Canadian Maple Cookies

In keeping with desserts honoring Vancouver and the Olympic games, here's another recipe with Canadian roots from  This maple cookie is described as "rich, golden, and delicious."  The recipe calls for real maple syrup.  If you don't have any, the next time you're in the grocery store pick up a bottle.  It's worth it and the corn-syrup-based substitute just won't do. 

"Rich and golden" sounds like a medal-winner to me!

Canadian Maple Cookies


1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup real maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract   
2 teaspoons baking soda
