Vermont is the state that produces the most maple syrup, and these cookies are a sure-fire way to highlight that flavor. It’s a rich, round, caramel-like sweetness that's almost impossible to ignore, and these cookies are loaded with it. These moist, soft and buttery confections will melt in your mouth.
Maple syrup is classified as grade A or B, with B being darker and more assertively flavored than A. When it comes to baking, grade B is the best choice because its stronger flavor will really shine amidst the other ingredients. (Grade A works best for drizzling on pancakes or waffles.)
