Milk Chocolate Chip Maple Sugar Cookies
These cookies are a perfect balance of gooey chocolate, with a hint of maple. Adding walnuts creates an other worldly flavor! Using maple sugar instead of white sugar adds a myriad of health benefits including minerals and vitamins. Perhaps maple sugar’s most impressive quality is its lower glycemic index. This means that blood sugar will rise more slowly when consuming maple sugar versus white sugar.
Most cookie recipes encourage a 2 bowl operation where the liquids and solids are combined separately and then folded together. I have also used just one Cuisenart bowl and found the results to be the same!
Mix in Cuisenart until smooth:
- 1 egg
- 1 ½ sticks unsalted butter
- 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
- 1 ¼ cups pure granulated maple sugar
Sprinkle evenly on top of combined mixture:
- 2 cups flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
Pulse a few times to incorporate the flour. Pour in:
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips
- 1 cup walnut pieces
Bake 10-12 minutes in a 325 degree
