Anyway, I had forgotten how tough it is to keep up with the 25 days of cookies. What makes it so tough is that I bake each cookie everyday, as well as sharing it with you guys. But it sure is a tasty endeavor. :)
For today, I wanted to make a cookie using my super yummy maple syrup from Canada--the REAL stuff.
|Mmmmm REAL maple syrup--at about $8 a can...|
Maple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies
Yields 2 to 3 dozen
- 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 egg
- 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1 1/2 tsp maple extract
- 2 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup cinnamon chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with either parchment paper or baking mat and then set aside.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Set aside. (This is a particularly good job for the really little helpers. Abby is the designated "mixer" in our house. :) )
Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter. Then beat in the brown sugar.
Once the brown sugar has been incorporated and the mixture is light in color and somewhat fluffy, beat in the egg. As the egg is being beat, add in the 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar.
Beat until the egg has been completely incorporated.
Slowly add in half of the flour mixture. Scrape the sides down and then with the mixer on low speed, pour in the maple syrup. Then slowly add in the remaining flour mixture.
Once all of the flour has been mixed in, scrape the sides down and beat in the maple extract. Stir in the oats first.
Once the oats have been fully mixed in, stir in the cinnamon chips.
