Why did I decide to bake today? I was so humid you couldn't even take a deep breath. It was just one of those days I wanted to be in the kitchen. This is what I decided to do on my break from working. This is the second set of cookies. The first set are below, the rice flour cookies. These were really good too. Just not on a day like today. The top cookie has sparkling sugar and the bottom does not.
1 cup white rice flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/2 cup of chopped walnuts
extra maple syrup for the top of the cookies
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Mix all the flour, baking powder, brown sugar, and cinnamon together. Then add the egg, vanilla extract and maple syrup. Mix well then add the walnuts. Let stand a couple minutes to firm up a little before placing on a baking sheet.
Evenly distribute about 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of the mixture on parchment paper. I did not grease mine. After you evenly distribute the cookies, if you would like, add 1/4 teaspoon or more on top of each cookie before baking.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes until light golden brown.
I hope you enjoy this recipe if you try it. I was pleasantly surprised.
