Baking My Way: Maple Nut Brown Sugar Shortbread Cookies

Not a super exciting cookie but it's shortbread, sometimes they just are a little boring and it seems like this book has a lot of them! It tastes great with a little icing on them, but I mean what doesn't?

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 1/2 cups All Purpose or Unbleached Flour
1/4 chopped pecans
1/4 teaspoon maple extract

In large bowl, combine sugar, brown sugar and butter; beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla, maple extract and egg; blend well. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Stir in flour until well blended.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. With bottle of glass dipped in sugar, flatten each cookie to about 1/4-inch thickness.

Bake at 375 for 6-9 minutes or until golden brown.


  1. cookies look wonderful
    maple extract must give it a nice flavour

  2. Beautiful looking cookies!
