Maple Walnut Spice Cookies

Tasty little frosted cookies, that I think look so pretty.  These cookies were in Cooking Light Magazine, maybe they say they are light because they are little and they think you will eat just one…funny!  I did not eat just one.

Maple Walnut Spice Cookies

1½ cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves

1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbl maple syrup
1 large egg

1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbl maple syrup
1 Tbl milk
2 Tbl butter, softened

1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts, toasted

Preheat oven to 350°.  Whisk  together flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and cloves in a medium bowl.

In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar with mixer until light and fluffy.  Add syrup and egg.  Add flour mixture, beat until just combined.  Drop by small cookie scoop (about 1 Tbl) on cookie sheet.  Bake for 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cool on pan 5 minutes.  Remove to cool completely on wire rack.

Prepare frosting, whip together powdered sugar, maple syrup, milk, and butter, until smooth frosting consistency.  Spread frosting evenly over each cookie, sprinkle with nuts.
