So I am on a quest to make a maple syrup flavored oatmeal cookie.

Now my first experiments will be with extracts and my final will be with the real stuff.

The “Fake” Maple Syrup

The Recipe (1):

  • You’ll need to bring 1 cup of water to a boil
  • Then add 1 cup of white sugar
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of Mapeleine.   Other Maple Extracts @ Amazon

Keep stirring until the sugar is dissolved and remove the pot from the heat and let it cool down. When it reaches room temperature, pour it in a syrup dispenser or mason jar and keep in the fridge for up to three months.

Now why would I use an extract versus the real thing… simple – to keep the sugar down and cost down.  But for my cookie recipe I would be adding this in directly instead of making a syrup.

Next up, I will be using a syrup.. but first I have to research what make a good maple syrup and more importantly, what makes it task strongly of “maple”…
