Hi everyone, HAPPY HOLIDAYS! It’s Jenn from Deliciously Sprinkled back to share a delicious holiday recipe with you!
These Maple Sugar Cookies are the perfect holiday cookie. Every time I make these cookies I think about the movie Elf, where he puts maple syrup on everything! LOL It’s one of my favorite Christmas movies.
And speaking of favorites, these Maple Sugar Cookies are delicious! These cookies have all the flavors you love from a soft sugar cookie but with a hint of maple syrup. And the maple syrup glaze is to die for, I mean it doesn’t get much better than these cookies.
YUMMY, enjoy! 🙂
