Maple Cookies with Brown Butter Frosting. These ultra soft bakery style cookies are made with real maple syrup and topped with a swirl of BROWN BUTTER frosting!
Hey y’all. Who likes cookies?! These super soft bakery style cookies are made with real maple syrup, light brown sugar, and sour cream. Meaning they are ultra moist and loaded with a sweet subtle maple flavor. To complete these cookies and take them slightly over the top is a nutty, creamy brown butter frosting.
Maple is possibly one of my favorite flavors. And it’s perfect for Fall. Adding the maple syrup to the cookies gives it that sweet syrup taste and adds extra moisture. If you really want to take that maple flavor through the roof, just add about 1/2 a teaspoon of maple extract to the cookie dough and you will be in maple heaven. The extract isn’t required though, and you still get a subtle maple flavor with just the syrup.
These cookies are based on a cookie recipe I came across years ago in an older Betty Crocker cookbook. They are classic, flavorful, and always a huge hit! Not to mention when you slather that brown butter frosting on top!!
Using brown butter in the frosting adds that delightful nutty flavor that you get when you cook the butter in a skillet. If you’ve never made it before it’s so easy! Just add the butter to a saucepan and stir while heating over medium heat. The butter will literally start to brown and you will see brown bits on the bottom of the pan. And it’s done when the smell makes your mouth start to water. No joke.
Mix that up in the frosting, slather it all over the cookies and you will be in Maple and Brown Butter heaven.
