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.

    Terroir is a French word often used in the winemaking world: It refers to the set of environmental factors — soil, climate and sunlight — that imbue grapes with their distinct flavor. But the word has wider applications. Travelers in search of Vermont's unique terroir can get a taste of place simply by dining at one of our many fine restaurants.

    What's better than a late-season bluebird day of skiing? A late-season bluebird day of skiing with maple syrup. Since 1939, the Mt. Mansfield Ski Club has hosted the Stowe Sugar Slalom. Now one of America's most recognized alpine races, the two-day event coincides with the tapping of the state's maple trees — a sweet tradition. More than 1,000 racers and upwards of 600 spectators have turned out in years past to hit the slopes in festive attire inspired by the season. Relax afterward at a hillside barbecue with live music. A local delicacy will be served: maple syrup on snow, paired with a pickle!
