Serves 20 cookies | Prep Time 30 minutes | Cook Time 12-14 minutes

Ingredients

Cookies:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1/8 tsp. salt
3 egg yolks
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour

Icing:
1/4 cup heavy cream or milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
3 tbs. pure maple syrup
2 to 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar.


Cookies:


1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.


2. In a large bowl beat butter and shortening with a mixer on medium for 30 seconds. Add the next 6 ingredients (through the salt). Beat on medium for 2 minutes, scraping bowl as needed. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. Beat in flour.


3. Shape dough into 1 1/2 inch balls. Place 3 inches apart on an un-greased cookie sheet. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until edges are lightly browned (tops will still look slightly soft).


4. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes. Remove; cool on a wire rack. Centers will dip as cookies cool. Drizzle with maple icing.


Icing:


1. Stir together 1/4 cup heavy cream or milk with 1/4 cup melted butter and 3 tablespoons of pure maple syrup.


2. Whisk in 2 to 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar to make icing drizzling consistency.
