2 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
Icing: Maple butter glaze
Heat 1/2 cup butter until golden• Blend in 2 cups of powdered sugar and 2 tsp maple flavoring•
Mix shortening, brown sugar, sugar and eggs. Stir in sour cream and maple flavoring. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and blend in with the wet mixture. Chill dough till soft (overnight or put in freezer for a short time to firm up).
Drop rounded teaspoons on greased cookie sheet. Bake 375 degrees for 10 mins or until almost no imprint remains when touched slightly. Cool.
Heat 1/2 cup butter until golden. Blend in 2 cups of powdered sugar and 2 tsp maple flavoring.
