These Maple Cookies are a sweet, simple, scrumptious cookie for autumn. Oh yeah, and did I mention addictive.

Yes, they are pretty addictive, too. I think I’ll only eat just one of these cookies and be done with it when I start baking them, but goodness gracious, I just have no will power when it comes to cookies.

I like to keep the maple in them really delicate and not at all overpowering. Of course, you can adjust the maple in the cookies to give you the exact amount of maple in them that you are looking for, but for my family, this is perfect.

Of course, I also like to add a little bit of my maple buttercream to the tops of them and even like to smoosh a couple together with some of that buttercream frosting in the center for a yummy maple cookie sandwich.

Recipe Review


  1. Lovely! The addition of the maple buttercream is fantastic. I’ve been using a lot more maple these days. It’s such a perfect flavor for fall.

  2. I am SO terrible when I bake cookies. Because in my world you HAVE to taste at least a couple of cookies from each batch to make sure they came out okay 🙂

  3. I too, wonder if real maple syrup can be used. I have copious amounts of maple syrup and when I saw the cookies, they looked sooooo good. Have you tried them with the real thing?

  4. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful recipes. I can’t wait to try them. Just reading about the cookies, the frostings, and the best chocolate cake w/chocolate buttercream frosting, inspires me so much. I can’t seem to cook without a recipe (no confidence in the kitchen), and all of your posts are so encouraging and wonderful to read. Really appreciate your sharing your expertise.

  5. 5 stars
    These are very nice cookies. The maple flavor is very subtle. In fact, I would even consider increasing it a touch the next time I make them. I baked mine at 375 degrees instead of 400 degrees. Thanks for a great recipe.
