Total time: 
  • 3/4 cup butter (1.5 sticks) at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup (Grade B if you can find/afford it)
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Cream together the butter and dark brown sugar with an electric mixer until well-combined and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until just smooth.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture in 3-4 increments, alternating with the maple syrup (starting and ending with the flour).
  4. Use a cookie scoop or spoon to drop cookie dough by the tablespoonful on a parchment or silpat-lined cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until edges are very lightly brown.
  5. Let sit on the hot baking sheet for 3 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack. Let cool slightly then enjoy!
