Maple Cinnamon Cookies

Are you more of a chewy cookie person or a crispy cookie person? I think the perfect cookie has a combination of both. I love it when cookies are crispy on the outside, but soft and chewy on the inside. These Maple Cinnamon Cookies are exactly that. They’re crisp around the edges, but soft with just the right amount of chewiness in the center.

Maple syrup, cinnamon, and ginger are brought together to make a sweet, yet spice filled dough. I recommend using good quality Grade A Dark Color syrup because it has a stronger maple flavor. Don’t worry, if you’re looking for something else to make with the syrup, I’ve got you covered with this Buttermilk Waffle Cake with Maple Buttercream and these Maple Cream Scones.

Even though these cookies have several elements to them, they’re pretty simple and come together rather quickly. You’ll start out by making the salted caramel. Don’t let the words “salted caramel” dissuade you. This caramel recipe only takes four ingredients, and as long as you have your ingredients ready to go and you keep a close eye on your caramel’s color, you’ll end up with a delicious sauce! Trust me, you’ve got this. Plus, the next best thing? Any leftover caramel sauce can be stored in the fridge for all of your snacking/dipping/drenching needs.
