Steps

  • 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.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Look for a small maple leaf-shaped cutter at cookware stores.
  • tip 2
    Cookie dough must remain refrigerated if it is to be firm enough for rolling and cutting; keep unused dough refrigerated.
  • tip 3
    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.
