three things makes a post, aka COOKIES

1. Well, that was a nice couple days of normal moods. Too bad it seems to be over. :(

2. Real-Person Slash is never not creepy. *shudders*

3. Recipe! These guys are less maple cookie and more sugar cookie with a hint of maple. Subtle, but in a good way. I'm guessing that the glaze would negate that, but I didn't make it since I was concerned that it would make the cookies too sticky to store.

Maple Cookies (with optional glaze)
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 large eggs
3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon coarse salt

Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in 1/2 cup maple syrup and eggs. Gradually stir in flour and salt. Dough will be very sticky.

Scoop dough onto baking sheets in rounded teaspoons, spaced 2" apart. Using fingers or the back of a spoon, flatten cookies to 1/4 inch thickness.

Bake 12-15 minutes, until cookies are just beginning to brown at the edges. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool.

Glaze: In a small saucepan, simmer 1 cup maple syrup until reduced to 3/4 cup. When cookies are cooled, spoon the syrup over the cookies and sprinkle each cookie with a little salt.

Makes about 3 dozen cookies (I made a half batch and came up with 29, so do the math).

3a. OMG I have so much work to do tomorrow...

Yum. Delicious. We made 43 on a full batch, but a couple were slightly larger. Perhaps this is double the 22 that are actually in your picture? (Did you eat 7 from the 29 or did you accidentally multiply 4 * 7 + 1 instead of 3 * 7 + 1? If the latter, I understand, as the aroma from these cookies is itself intoxicating.)

*is amused*

Actually, this picture was taken after I'd eaten one cookie and tinned half a dozen more for my mother to share with friends the next day.

(I will refrain from my usual response that, while I am in fact a humanities person, my basic math is pretty good and I did pass calculus, lo these many years ago. :P)
