Cookies
1
cup butter, softened
1/3
cup whipping cream
1/2
teaspoon maple extract
2
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
2
tablespoons sugar
Filling
1/4
cup butter, softened
1
cup powdered sugar
1/2
teaspoon maple extract
3
to 4 teaspoons milk
  1. In large bowl, combine 1 cup butter, whipping cream and 1/2 teaspoon maple extract; blend well. Stir in flour until well mixed. Divide dough in half; shape each half into flattened disk. Wrap each in plastic wrap; refrigerate 1 hour for easier handling.
  2. Heat oven to 375°F. On lightly floured surface, roll half of dough at a time to 1/8-inch thickness. Keep remaining half of dough refrigerated. Cut dough with 2-inch maple-leaf cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookies sheets. Sprinkle with sugar. With fork, prick each cookie 3 or 4 times.
  3. Bake at 375°F. for 7 to 10 minutes or until slightly puffed and edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool 10 minutes or until completely cooled.
  4. In small bowl, blend all filling ingredients, adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency; beat until smooth. Spread scant 1 teaspoon filling between 2 cooled cookies.

Kitchen Tips
Look for a small maple leaf-shaped cutter at cookware stores.
Kitchen Tip
Cookie dough must remain refrigerated if it is to be firm enough for rolling and cutting; keep unused dough refrigerated.
Bake the cookies and prepare the filling up to two days in advance. Transfer the cookies to a cookie tin and store at room temperature. Cover the filling and refrigerate it. Bring the filling to room temperature and assemble the sandwiches just before serving.
