I created these soft, sparkly cookies because my sister loves cinnamon French toast covered in maple syrup. In the case of these cookies, bigger is definitely better! I like to use white whole wheat flour, but any whole wheat flour will work.—Mary Shenk, Dekalb, Illinois

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup corn syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons maple flavoring
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large bowl, cream butter, 1/2 cup sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in egg, corn syrup, vanilla and flavoring. In another bowl, whisk remaining ingredients; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Refrigerate, covered, until firm enough to shape, about 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°. Place remaining sugar in a shallow bowl. Shape dough into 1-3/4-in. balls; roll in sugar. Place 2 in. apart on parchment-lined baking sheets.
  3. Bake until edges are golden brown, 11-13 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
