More About This Recipe

  • Get those little fingers limbered up -- they've got a job to do: Making cute cut-out cookies for fall!

    What I’ve learned baking with kids is that you have to keep things super simple and fast to keep their attention and to avoid a huge mess.

    My kids love helping me in the kitchen and I love having their help as long as they have clean hands (germ freak alert!).

    Pillsbury sugar cookie dough is a great way to start your cooking adventure with your kids because all the hard work is done, leaving the fun decorating part for you and your kids to enjoy. All you need are some colorful sprinkles, some fun fall cookie cutters like leaves and pumpkins, and some quick toppings.

    My son helped me roll out the dough with a little flour. We cut out some leaves and pumpkins using some inexpensive cookie cutters I bought at my local craft store.

    Here are some easy toppings that you and your kids can use for your sugar cookies:

    Three Easy Sugar Cookie Toppings

    1) Cinnamon Sugar: Before baking, sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on your sugar cookies for a fall-flavored bite.

    2) Peanut Butter: Spread some of your favorite creamy peanut butter on your baked sugar cookies and sprinkle with some fall colored sprinkles.

    3) Maple Frosting: With some powdered sugar and a couple of drops of maple syrup, you can have a fast and easy maple frosting that adds a fall twist to plain sugar cookies.

    Cooking with your kids is a fun and different way of spending quality time. It doesn’t have to be complicated … just easy and tasty fun!

Sugar Cookies with Maple Icing

The truth about these sugar cookies with maple icing is that the cookies are just an excuse to eat the icing. You may find yourself sampling the icing with a spoon before icing the cookies just to be sure that it passes the test. In my experience, this tasting may lead to you having to make a second batch of the icing!

Recipe Summary

  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup shortening
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 3 egg yolks
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 recipe Maple Icing

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. In a large bowl combine butter and shortening. Beat with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, maple syrup, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheets for 2 minutes. Transfer to wire racks cool. Centers will dip as cookies cool. Drizzle with Maple Icing.

Recipe Summary

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ¾ cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavored extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavored extract

Combine flour and baking soda, set aside.

Mix together the brown sugar, 1 teaspoon maple extract, vanilla, 3/4 cup butter and egg. Stir in the flour mixture. The dough will be very sticky.

Drop onto greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Let rest for one minute before removing from cookie sheet. Frost when cool.

To Make Frosting: Combine 2 cups confectioners' sugar, 2 tablespoons butter, 2 tablespoons milk, and 1 teaspoon maple extract. Spread over cooled cookies.

About Maple Bacon Cookies

The base of this cookie is an amped up sugar cookie recipe. Not only does the cookie have maple syrup in the dough, but it also has a touch of bacon grease. The grease adds a deeper, richer flavor, but you could always replace the grease with additional butter if the grease weirds you out. The frosting is a simple maple buttercream, but to keep things consistent, the frosting also has a touch of bacon grease. Crumbled bacon is the salty element that pulls it all together.

These cookies, and their salty/sweet combo are positively addicting. After you try your hand at these cookies, you can graduate to Bacon Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Frosting or just enjoy these cinnamon pancakes with candied bacon. And for the brown sugar lovers, try these Chocolate Chip Brown Sugar Cookies! Maple and bacon are meant to be and nothing helps that union shine more than these maple bacon sugar cookies!
