Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Dash salt
  • FROSTING:
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • Maple leaf cookie cutter (2-3/4 inches)
  • Red paste or liquid food coloring
  • Pastry or heavy-duty resealable plastic bag
  • #3 round pastry tip, optional

Directions

  1. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Roll out on a floured surface to 1/8-in. thickness; cut with a cookie cutter dipped in flour. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned (do not overbake). Remove to wire racks to cool. For frosting, beat confectioners' sugar, butter, vanilla and salt. Add syrup; beat until smooth. If leaf veins are desired, set aside 1/2 cup; add food coloring to remaining frosting. Spread red frosting on cookies. Cut a small hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag; insert round tip into bag. Fill bag with reserved frosting; pipe veins on leaves. Yield: about 6 dozen.
