Maple Oatmeal Cookies

Best Cookies Ever!! They taste like breakfast!  Try them!!

Adapted from
1 Cup Butter, unsalted and room temperature
1 1/3 Cup Light Brown Sugar, packed
2 Large Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1/4 Cup Pure Maple Syrup
2 Cups Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
3 Cups Rolled or Quick Cooking Oats

  1. In bowl of electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. 
  2. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Add vanilla and maple syrup and beat until combined. 
  3. Sift together flour, soda, cinnamon and salt. With mixer on low speed, gradually add dry ingredients until incorporated. Stir in oats.
  4. Chill batter for 30-45 minutes in refrigerator (this helps the cookies stay plump in the oven.)
  5. Preheat oven to 350 and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Remove batter from refrigerator and drop by 1 1/2 tsp. or 1 tbs. onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until edges just begin to brown and middles remain light in color.
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes then remove to wire rack to cool completely.
