Maple Walnut Cookies

11 Jul

I should have made these last week. Maple is a fitting flavour to enjoy for Canada Day but whatever, I’m not regretting my decision to make Strawberry Shortcake.  Last night, I was craving cookies but was out of chocolate chips, peanut butter, oatmeal…all my usual ingredients that go in to a cookie.  But I had maple syrup (what good Canadian girl doesn’t?) and remembered a recipe in Vegan with a Vengeance that I’ve been meaning to bake since I got the book two years ago-Maple Walnut Cookies

Maple Walnut Cookie with Creamy Maple Frosting

I nixed most of the walnuts, (because well, I was getting low on walnuts) instead I just topped them with a walnut halve after drizzling them with Creamy Maple Frosting from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World.  They turned out delicious, soft and chewy cookies with lots of maple flavour and the frosting was unbelievable, it was so thick and easy to work with.  I never have that much luck with frostings.  Ever.  I’m definitely trying out the maple cupcakes that accompany the frosting recipe one day.  Maybe for a more fitting time, the next time Canada needs celebrating?

    I can’t stop looking at the photo! What a delicious idea to top the cookie with maple frosting. They look so warm and soft and chewy, mmmm (if you can’t tell already, I’m obsessed with cookies)!

    Those cookies look amazing…what is the maple frosting made out of?


  19. Ashley July 18, 2008 at 8:05 am #

    Thanks everyone!

    Jarreau-the frosting’s slightly different than your average frosting as it uses soymilk powder instead of icing sugar, it’s reallllly good!

    Oh wow, that picture has my stomach grumbling. I love maple! (Of course, I’m Canadian as well). I’d wash these down with a cold Canadian beer, of course.
