Cookie Recipe #300 - Maple Pecan Crinkles
Rather than putting your maple syrup on pancakes or waffles, put it in today's recipe for a soft, sweet cookie.
Ingredients: 3/4 cup butter or margarine, 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed, 1/4 cup maple syrup, 1 egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/2 cup chopped pecans, 1/4 cup granulated sugar.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar. Add the maple syrup, egg, and vanilla. Beat until light and fluffy. Beat in the flour, baking soda, and nutmeg. Stir in the nuts. Roll teaspoonfuls of dough into balls; roll the balls in the granulated sugar.
