Maple Shortbread

Buttery melt in your mouth Shortbread cookies with a touch of maple syrup to add a little more sweetness.

The perfect buttery Maple Shortbread cookies

Remember when I went through my honey mustard kick? Now obviously it’s all about the maple syrup. First it was this amazing Maple Bacon Gravy. Now it’s Maple Shortbread Cookie time.


Normally I think of December as cookie time around here but yesterday was a special day. It was my Mama’s birthday! And if you frequent this blog you know she is the most amazing woman in the world! So happy birthday Mama I know you enjoyed these Maple Shortbread while you and Dad were here – since there are only 2 left in the cookie jar. hehe

Melt in your mouth Maple Shortbread cookies

To sell you on these a little more I took a batch of them to work lately and one coworker said “these taste even better than the ones I grew up eating that my grandmother used to make”. I’d call that a success story!
