Today we’re taking peanut butter cookies to a whole new level. These Maple Cinnamon Glazed Peanut Butter Cookies are going to rock your world with their sweet maple and warm cinnamon flavors. Thanks to Skippy Peanut Butter for inviting me to me a part of their holiday YIPPEE campaign!
Baking has been a part of our holiday preparations and celebrations for as long as I can remember. I come from a family of exceptional bakers and cooks. I grew up in the kitchen working right along side them and developed a love and passion for making and baking. Sound familiar?
This passion and desire only gets more intensfied during the holiday season, or, as my sister aptly names it, “baking season”.
Yes folks, baking season is upon us and to that I say YIPPEE! Nothing is better than getting my family in the kitchen with me, making yummy treats for us all to enjoy. Nothing.
We had our first Thanksgiving meal yesterday and I was in charge of dessert. It had came to my attention a short time ago that I have never shared a peanut butter cookie recipe here at Mom On Timeout…for shame! I’m not quite sure how that happened considering my family lives off of peanut butter. We eat it for breakfast, lunch, and for dinner. And, of course, for dessert!
Time to remedy that situation. Stat.
I used my very favorite peanut butter, Skippy Naturals to get the ultimate peanut butter flavor in these cookies. I used creamy but crunchy peanut butter would work too. Skippy Peanut Butter is my go-to peanut butter for all my baking and it just happens to be my family’s favorite peanut butter. Period.
There’s not much better in life than a peanut butter cookie, or a peanut butter ccokie with chocolate. Or, so I thought.
I’ve always been a huge fan of maple, like HUGE. So, it occurred to me, maple and peanut butter would acutally go pretty well together. Why not make a maple glazed peanut butter cookie! Since it’s the holiday season I added a touch of cinnamon to the glaze.
The maple cinnamon glaze did exactly what I wanted it to do, providing a depth of flavor and sweetness and a little punch of seasonal warmth from the cinnamon.
Total success. My brother-in-law said, and I quote,”Trish, these are the first peanut butter cookies I have ever eaten that aren’t dry!” Mmmhhmm. Yes, you’e welcome. The maple cinnamon glaze is a special holiday touch for sure! YIPPEE!
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter (I used Skippy Naturals)
- ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
- ⅓ cup granulated sugar
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- 1 egg, room temperature
- 1 Tbls milk
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1⅓ cup flour
- 1 tsp corn starch
- ¾ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup butter
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp maple extract
- 1¼ cup powdered sugar
- 2 Tbls milk
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- Cream peanut butter, butter, and sugars together in a mixing bowl.
- Beat in egg, vanilla, and milk and continue mixing until well combined.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, corn starch, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
- Gradually add flour mixture to peanut butter mixture, mixing until dough comes together.
- Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Scoop out dough using a cookie scoop. (You want about two tablespoons of dough.) Use your hands to form into a ball.
- Roll balls in remaining ¼ cup of sugar and place on parchment line cookie sheet. Use a fork to press down on the cookie, flattening it slightly.
- Bake for 9-12 minutes, just until cookie is set. I like mine slightly underdone but you can go the fulll 12 minutes if you like.
- Remove cookies and cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet before moving to a cooling rack. Let cookies cool completely.
- Heat butter and maple syrup together in a small saucepan until butter is melted and ingredients are fully combined.
- Stir in maple extract and cinnamon.
- Whisk in powdered sugar ⅓ cup at a time until full incorporated. Add milk one teaspoon at a time until desired consistency is achieved.
- Dip cooled cookies in glaze and return to cooling rack.
- Let glaze set and then serve.
- Store cookies in an airtight container for up to three days.
