I don’t like to let holidays pass by without a dose of sugar cookies. A simple set of cookie cutters is all you need to make fun shapes for each special season. This Maple Sugar Cookie recipe is a real food version of the classic. The dough is easy to work with, so kids can help make these yummy treats.
You can eat these cookies plain or decorate them with whatever icing you like. I’m including a simple maple frosting recipe here. If you want to color the frosting, I recommend avoiding artificial food coloring. Derived from petroleum, artificial food dyes have been linked to long-term health problems and hyperactivity. Instead of using those little dye bottles full of chemicals, you can color your frosting with natural dyes. My homemade Easter egg dye post will help give you some natural food coloring ideas.
Maple Sugar Cookie Recipe Price Breakdown
This recipe yields about 24 cookies using 3-inch cookie cutter shapes, and it costs $3.50 to make ($.15 per cookie). This Maple Sugar Cookie recipe is a healthier alternative to typical, overly-sweetened sugar cookies, but these taste just as good.
