Maple Sugar Grinch Cookies

I love baking at Christmas time for my kids. From cupcakes to cookies, we enjoy the season flavors to celebrate the holidays. One of the kids favorite movies is How The Grinch Stole Christmas so of course we needed cookies to match.


This tasty twist adds even more flavor by adding maple extract to a delightful sugar cookie. Once you make these Maple Sugar Grinch Cookies, I promise you, you are going to change your mind about only making them for the holidays.

Ingredients

2 ½ cup all purpose flour

½ teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

Pinch of salt

½ teaspoon of cream of tartar

1 cup of softened butter

1 large egg

2 teaspoons of maple extract

1 ½ cup granulated sugar

½ cup of granulated sugar (for rolling) 

Green food color

Red heart sprinkles

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare a baking sheet by lightly spraying it with cooking spray or lining it with parchment paper.

Cream together butter and sugar for 2 minutes, or until fluffy.

Add the egg and maple extract and mix until incorporated.

Add salt, baking powder, baking soda and cream of tartar.

Blend for 1 minute.

Add green food coloring and mix. I added about 5 drops to the dough. We are aiming for a very light green color.

Add the flour and mix until combined.

Add several drops of green food coloring to the sugar you have set aside for rolling. 

With a fork, mix the food coloring into the sugar until you have a very vibrant green color.

Using a cookie scoop, form balls of dough and roll them in the green sugar.

Place on a cookie sheet 2” apart and bake for 12 minutes.

As the cookies come out of the oven, immediately press one heart sprinkle into the soft cookie.
