Whether you are a Maple Leafs fan, or just love maple, these Maple Shortbread cookies are just what you need when cool Fall weather arrives.

| Ingredients 

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavoring
  • 1 – 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

| Glaze

  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup

| Directions

In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar and cornstarch until blended. Beat in flavoring. Gradually beat in flour.

Shape dough into a disk and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate for 45 minutes or until firm enough to roll.

Preheat oven to 325° F. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut with a floured 2-3/4 inch maple leaf-shaped cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets.

Bake 20-25 minutes, or until edges are light brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

In a small bowl, mix confectioners’ sugar and maple syrup until smooth. Spread over cookies. Let stand until set.

Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
