Yields: 4 dozen
2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
butter (no substitutions)
packed light brown sugar
2 tbsp. pure maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 c. finely chopped pecans
Sanding sugar (optional)
- On waxed paper, mix flour and salt.
- In large bowl, with mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugars until just blended and creamy, occasionally scraping bowl with rubber spatula. Add syrup and vanilla; beat until mixed. Reduce speed to low; gradually beat in flour, then pecans, just until blended, scraping bowl.
- Divide dough into 2 equal pieces. Flatten each piece into a disk and wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 3 days. Let stand until pliable enough to roll.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- Between sheets of waxed paper, roll 1 disk of dough 1/4 in. thick. Remove top sheet of waxed paper. With 2- to 4-in. leaf-shaped cutters, cut dough into as many cookies as possible. Refrigerate trimmings. Place cookies, 1 inch apart, on prepared sheets.
- Bake cookies 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer cookies to wire rack to cool. Repeat with remaining dough and trimmings.
- When cookies are cool, brush with syrup to glaze, if desired. Sprinkle sanding sugar over syrup glaze, if desired. Let sugared cookies dry 1 hour.
- Store cookies (with waxed paper between layers if decorated) in airtight containers at room temperature up to 1 week, or in freezer up to 3 months.
