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.

    Passengers disembarking the Lake Champlain Ferry are regularly treated to some of the most dynamic art in Vermont. That's thanks to the annual Above the Radar graffiti festival, during which dozens of artists from New England and beyond cover a 260-foot wall by the ferry dock in this unique style of urban art. Local artist group Anthill Collective invites spectators to enjoy food trucks, dancing and music while watching a new mural come together this September. The collective's goal? "To show the public that graffiti and aerosol art are legitimate modern art forms and that, furthermore, it can be used as a medium for social change. This event serves as a window into an otherwise misunderstood lifestyle."
