Oh my goodness can you believe it is already November???!?!? I bet you are thinking, YAY no more pumpkin recipes right? Sorry, there are still more. I bought a bit too many cans of pumpkin this year
But, in an effort to switch it up a bit I thought I would provide you with a fun cookie recipe. The base of these cookies are the same as the Melted Witch Cookies. They are seriously the best sugar cookie recipe ever.
The maple frosting is a delicious addition. The frosting is not overly sweet, but is packed with maple brown sugar flavors.
These are great cookies to be served with an afternoon espresso or hot chocolate on a cold winter’s day.
