Last fall I went to a cool event called Brooklyn Skillshare. It was basically a day of classes taught by people who wanted to share their passions with others. The range of topics was really large — everything from how to mix and apply henna to how to fix your bike (this is Brooklyn we’re talking about, after all). I took some great classes, including one by the brain behind one of my favorite blogs, Eat Make Read.
Her class was all about infusing your own alcohols and making party snacks, which was really interesting and pretty damn tasty too! I started reading her blog frequently after that class, and found this recipe, which is hands-down one of my favorite cookies of all time. I decided to make them last weekend since we had all of the ingredients in the apartment, and in honor of the second Brooklyn Skillshare which is right around the corner on October 9th.
Since I originally hail from New England, the price of maple syrup here in NYC is shocking to me! My roommate bought some to make some pumpkin-maple cupcakes this weekend (yes, all we do is eat), so I nabbed a little to make my cookies too! I’ll definitely have to stock up when I visit home so that we don’t have to pay almost $10 for a tiny bottle next time!
These cookies couldn’t be simpler to make, but the end result is so fantastic — a buttery soft cookie with thick maple glaze and topped with the slightest sprinkling of salt. Eating just one of these is really not an option. Visit Eat Make Read for the recipe!
