Maple Raisin Cookies

It's that time of year again! Where I practically have to make at least one batch of cookies every day. But, the best kind of gift at Christmas is getting home baked goods, whether you are giving them to family or people are paying you to give them to THEIR families. Either way, I love to bake, and it puts a smile on my face knowing someone will be enjoying them while being around family.


2/3 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 stick margarine, softened
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. maple syrup
1 egg
1 1/2 c. oats
1/2 c. golden raisins (or normal)
1 c. powdered sugar
3 Tbs. maple syrup
1 Tbs. heavy cream

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In an electric mixer, beat the margarine and brown sugar together. Add the maple syrup and egg and mix until everything is a smooth consistency. Add in the flour, baking soda and salt slowly. Lastly, add in the raisins and oats on low speed, just to incorporate. Using a cookie scoop (tablespoon size), place the cookie mounds 2 inches apart on the prepared pan. Bake for 14-16 minutes until the edges are a golden brown. Let sit on the cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to a cooling rack. While the cookies are cooling, mix the powdered sugar, heavy cream and 3 Tbs. maple syrup together in a small bowl. Place the same parchment under the drying rack with the cookies on it. Drizzle the icing on top at let fully set.
