Soft Maple Sugar Cookies

Products Used


Maple Sugar Cookies

  • 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour*
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon maple extract

    Maple Icing

    • *Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


    1. Preheat oven to 350°F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
    2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.  Set aside.
    3. In a large bowl, beat butter, vegetable oil and sugar until well combined.   Mix in egg, vanilla extract and maple extract.
    4. Add flour mixture 1 cup at a time, mixing until completely combined.
    5. Roll 2 tablespoons of dough into balls and place on prepared baking sheet, leaving room for spreading. Lightly flatten dough balls with bottom of a cup into a disk shape.
    6. Bake for 8-10 minutes, just until edges are set and cookies are just starting to turn golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes on baking pan. Transfer to a cooling rack.
    7. For icing: In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, maple syrup, water, vanilla extract, and maple extract until smooth. 
    8. Using a spoon, smooth icing onto top of each cookie. Quickly sprinkle with sprinkles if desired and let set for 10 minutes, or until hardened.
    9. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
