Serves 12 cookies
¾ cup (175 ml) unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 cups (500 ml) all-purpose flour
¼ cup (60 ml) granulated maple sugar or brown sugar
¼ cup (60 ml) maple syrup
½ cup (125 ml) store-bought maple butter


  1. Mix together all ingredients until well combined. Transfer from bowl onto a work surface, shape into a rectangle. Cut in half and wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Remove 1 dough from refrigerator and roll out on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of ⅛-in (4 mm). Using a maple leaf cookie cutter, cut cookies and place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Trace lines on the cookies to reproduce the veining of leaves. Repeat with second pack of dough.
  3. Bake for 10 to 14 minutes, until sides are golden. Remove to a cooling rack and let cool completely. Place 2 tsp (10 ml) of maple butter in the centre of each cookie and cover each with a second cookie. Press down carefully to line up the cookies and spread the maple butter.
