It’s Christmas time (because Mariah Carey says so… lol) so I’m starting my Holiday baking with cookies that I love to have when I make my cookie boxes for Christmas. These cookies have been a hit during the years and I always have people on social media asking for the recipe, that is why I just made them so I can create a reel (video) for Instagram so you can all see how easy is to make them.
Let me tell you about this cookie… My husband (Steve) gives me great ideas of different things to bake. One day he said: “Why don’t you make a Peanut Butter Cookie with a Maple Glaze”? I was like … mmm.. that might work… but I had a doubt about how to make this glaze… it had to be a glaze that kinda gets a bit hard so it is easy to eat and does’t make a mess, right? Oh well.. I gave it a try and the result was perfect.
