Maple Wedding Cookies

If you read my story this week about spending at day at Vermont Cake Studio, perhaps I've inspired you to reach for your mixing bowls and bust out your own layer-cake masterpiece.

...Or not.

If the thought of fooling around with fondant is just too much, you're in luck. VCS owner and pastry chef Perrin Williams  (pictured) was kind enough to share her recipe for Maple Wedding Cookies with us. Satisfy that sweet tooth without any of the sweat. These cookies are really great — and I don't even like maple. (Telltale sign of a nonnative Vermonter.) Try 'em out.

Maple Wedding Cookies

recipe from Perrin Williams, Vermont Cake Studio

1/2 pound butter

3/4 cup confectioner's sugar

1 teaspoon maple extract

2 and 1/4 cup flour

1 cup pecans or walnuts, finely chopped

 

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Add the maple extract. Add flour and mix. Add nuts; stir.

Scoop the dough into heaping tablespoons and place on the cookie sheet. Flatten the balls down a little.

Bake for 10-15 minutes until just colored, and firm enough to hold its shape when picked up.

Let cool and dip in confectioner's sugar.

    What's SUP? It's short for standup paddleboarding, and it's been called the fastest-growing water sport in the world. Accessible to all ages and fitness levels, SUP is easy to learn and enjoy. In recent years, it's experienced a groundswell of popularity in Burlington, where Lake Champlain beckons all summer long. Get out on the water at the 10th annual Stand Up for the Lake, a benefit for the Community Sailing Center that includes a mile kids' race, three-mile recreational race and six-mile elite race. Or ride a wave of goodwill from the shore, where food and music make a splash.

    Spring can be slow to arrive in Vermont: March and April often bring mud — or still more snow — instead of flowers. So the real sign of the season is when the Burlington Farmers Market moves outside. Though it's a popular indoor gathering spot during the chillier months, the bustling outdoor marketplace doubles as a weekly festival in the heart of downtown. In addition to 90-plus vendors of food, artisan crafts and other goods, it includes live musical entertainment and frequently inspires impromptu picnics and acro-yoga circles. Do as the locals do: Save Saturday morning for the market.
