Papal Maple Cookies

Let the conclave begin!

Papal Maple Cookies

Create some excitement with this tender cookie that's both sweet and salty.

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar (plus extra in small bowl for flattening cookies)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. Kosher salt

1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 Tbsp. water
Additional Kosher salt for sprinkling

HEAT oven to 375°F.

BEAT butter, sugar and vanilla 3 min. or until light and fluffy. Add combined flour and salt; beat until combined.

SCOOP 1 Tbsp. portions of dough 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Dip flat-bottomed glass into bowl of sugar. Flatten cookies, one by one, dipping glass into sugar each time.

BAKE 12-13 min. or until bottom and edges are brown. Cool on baking sheet 1 min. before removing with spatula to wire racks.

MIX powdered sugar, maple syrup and water. Working quickly, brush onto cookies and sprinkle lightly with Kosher salt.

I use #70 cookie scoop.
