Ingredients

For the cookies:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter-flavored shortening
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon maple extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the frosting:

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon maple extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F (180C), and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt – set aside.
  3. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the shortening and sugar until combined and fluffy – about 1 minute.
  4. Add the egg, maple and vanilla extract. Beat until combined.
  5. Add the flour mixture in ½ cup increments, mixing to combine and scraping sides when necessary.
  6. Using a small cookie scoop, form dough into balls and place on cookie sheet about an inch or so apart.
  7. Bake cookies for 8 – 10 minutes or until cookies have spread and dough is set. Remove from oven and allow the cookies to rest for several minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack. Allow cookies to cool completely before icing.
  8. For the icing:
  9. In a medium bowl, whisk together the frosting ingredients until smooth. (Add more water or powdered sugar to reach desired consistency, if necessary)
  10. Using the back of a spoon, spread a thin layer of icing onto each cookie.
