Maple Leaf Blondies
To make these cookies, you can use a maple leaf cookie cutter.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed firm
1 1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons maple flavoring
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease a 9×13 baking pan and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Add the eggs and beat until combined. Stir in maple flavoring.
In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, a little bit at a time until well blended. Stir in mini chocolate chips.
Pour batter into the 9×13 pan and spread out evenly.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Blondies will still be soft. Remove from oven and allow to cool 10 minutes; then cut out maple leaf shapes using a cookie cutter. Lay maple leaves on a cooling rack to finish cooling completely before frosting with maple icing.
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon butter, softened
1 to 2 teaspoons milk
1 teaspoon maple flavoring
Mix powdered sugar, butter, 1 teaspoon milk, and maple flavoring together. If the frosting is too thick, thin out with 1 more teaspoon of milk.
Store in a sealed container. Do not stack blondies once they are frosted. Best served within 2 days.
