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.

    From bustling Church Street to the highly trafficked waterfront, Burlington is anything but a ghost town — unless Thea Lewis is leading your way. The actor, author and paranormal historian is also Vermont's queen of Halloween, and, in the weeks leading up to that haunted holiday, she presides over three walking tours rife with local history and mystery. The Darkness Falls Tour explores the spooky spirits of Burlington's downtown; the Wicked Waterfront Tour dives into shipwrecks, lake monsters and shoreline mischief; and the Cemetery Tour travels to the city's most ghoulish gravestones. These tales are spine-tingling but typically appropriate for ages 9 and up.
