Amish Maple Iced Cookies
Next to the typical chocolate chip cookie, Amish Maple Iced Cookies are my favorite holiday cookie. But.. they aren’t just for the holidays (though they may seem to be!)
They start with a combination of ingredients – eggs, sugar, butter, flour – even milk! Once mixed, you scoop them onto a cookie sheet and gently push down the top. Bake in the 375 degree oven for 15 minutes.
Once baked, remove from the oven to cool on a wire rack. Lay a piece of wax paper or parchment under the wire rack to catch the drips from the frosting. Whip up the frosting and pour over the cookies. Allow to harden and enjoy!
There is no way to avoid eating these cookies without a glass of milk. So pour a tall one and enjoy these delicious Amish Maple Iced Cookies – you won’t be able to have just one!
