Maple Cookies

With Ginger & Orange Zest

Full of warm spice and rich flavors, these ginger-maple cookies with orange zest are bursting with fall flavor. Each buttery bite is perfectly soft and chewy. 


Using a stand or hand mixer, cream together butter, sugars, orange zest, fresh ginger and extracts until fluffy. If needed, periodically scrap the edge of the bowl.


For the eggs, start by adding just one to the creamed butter and sugar. Beat until combined. Repeat with the remaining egg.


Once the eggs are incorporated, add a few scoops of the flour mixture and beat in just until combined. Repeat until you incorporate all the flour mixture.


Now stir in a bag of white chocolate chips. Refrigerate the cookie dough for 30 minutes. While you can technically bake right away, this helps prevent overspreading.


Form the dough into golf ball-size balls and drop onto an ungreased, parchment paper-lined baking sheet, leaving a couple inches between each dough ball. All that's left is to bake!

You will love these maple cookies! Not only are they great fall cookies but they're also perfect for Christmas cookie baking.

Soft and chewy...and full of flavor. Love the white chocolate chips in there too. Great fall flavors in these delicious cookies! So good!
