maple butter cookies

procrastinating: doing my hair.

bake time: 15 minutes

cleanup time: 5 minutes

time spent procrastibaking: 45 minutes.

okay, so i had one of those nights where i fell asleep at like, 7pm, and so naturally i woke up at 1am ready and raring to go. i  don’t know what’s the deal, but it did allow for a lot of productivity– i cleaned my bedroom, i did all my dishes (even the super jammy ones from yesterday!), i watched three movies, i sorted laundry. there’s not a whole lot left for me to do– except to wash my hair. the lady procrastibakers out there know what i’m saying– it takes so freaking long to do my hair. comb, wash, condition, rinse, brush, dry, straighten. i know i sound like i’m complaining, but even thinking about it’s an ordeal.

so instead, i think i’ll put on some coffee and make an easy, delicious breakfast cookie this morning. simple, buttery, rich– these cookies are super basic and need only a few ingredients, but the ones we do use blend together perfectly. and the touch of maple syrup is good anytime, but especially with your morning coffee. let’s go!


  1. large mixing bowl
  2. small mixing bowl
  3. 2 sticks butter (softened)
  4. 3/4 cups light brown sugar
  5. 1/4 cup maple syrup
  6. 1/2 tsp coarse salt
  7. 2 cups all-purpose flour

step one. preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. prepare your cookie sheet with non-stick spray.

step two. if you haven’t allowed the butter to soften, zap it in the microwave. in your small bowl, beat the butter, sugar, and maple syrup until creamy.

step three. in your large bowl, mix the salt and flour together, and combine with your wet ingredients.

step four. refrigerate the dough until firm. once it’s able to be handled, roll into small balls (roughly the size of a quarter or so) and place evenly on your cookie sheet. bake for 12-15 minutes.

easy peasy! happy saturday morning!
