Maple Cookies

Maple Butterscotch Cookies

Maple syrup and butterscotch pair up to make a flavor filled cookie.

2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1 egg
3 ounces butterscotch chips
Granulated sugar, for rolling the cookies in

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and line 2 baking sheets with
parchment paper. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking
soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt. In a large bowl, beat
together the brown sugar, oil, and maple syrup. Beat in the egg.  With
the mixer on low, gradually add in the dry ingredients. Stir in the
butterscotch chips. The mixture will be crumbly.  Roll the dough into
1 and 1/2″ balls, and then flatten them lightly. Roll the cookies in
granulated sugar.  Place the cookies on the parchment paper and bake
for 13-15 minutes. Let cool on the pans for a couple minutes before
removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 20 cookies.
