Cookie Swap - Maple Oatmeal Cookies

I participated in the Cookie Swap this year.  I sent cookies to three individuals.  Only one box got returned to me because the post office read the wrong side of the box.  So I had to resend them, I hope they were still fresh.  Anyways, this is the recipe I sent.  The cookies were good.  I would make them again.
Maple Oatmeal Cookies
from Family Circle Magazine
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick)unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup plus 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar


1. Heat oven to 350 degrees . In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, beat butter, sugar and 1/4 cup of the maple syrup for 3 minutes. Beat in egg until just combined. Pour in flour and beat on low until just combined. Stir in oats and raisins.
2. Drop scant tablespoon-size rounds of batter onto baking sheets, spacing about 2 inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes, until golden. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
3. In a bowl, beat confectioners sugar, remaining 3 tbsp maple syrup and 1 tbsp water on low until well combined. Drizzle with a spoon over cooled cookies.

  1. Hi Kristie!! Was it my box that got returned? I got my box on Monday, December 9th but it looked like it was originally sent on 11/25. Anyhow, the packaging was so cute. Loved that you re-purposed the oatmeal container! Unfortunately, the box was pretty banged up when I got it and the cookies were scattered in the box. So sad - they looked very tasty! Thank you for sharing!
