A Month of Cookies-Chewy Maple Cookies-8

With another PAC meeting at the school coming up, I had my eye open to find another recipe to try that would promise nut free deliciousness.  Even better that this recipe proved to be quite simple.....and even better that it combined two flavours I love....coconut and maple.  With no idea about how this one would turn out I gave it a go.  The end result was as you might expect....a moist and chewy cookie due to the coconut with a hint of maple....I really think the maple extract helps to boost the maple flavour.  Another one to make again sometime.
Chewy Maple Cookies
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp maple extract
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tsp baking powder
1 3/4 cup flour
1 cup shredded coconut
Cream together the sugar and butter until fluffy.  Add in egg, vanilla, syrup, and baking powder and mix in.  Stir in flour and finally the coconut.  Chill dough in the fridge for 1 hour before dropping by rounded tsp onto a non stick baking sheet.  Bake at 375F for 8 minutes.  Cool on sheet a few minutes before moving to a cooling rack.
