Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup butter (vegan or regular)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Bake the cookies one tray at a time for about 8-11 minutes. Remove them from the oven when the edges are slightly brown and look set. The middles will look soft!
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

*WALNUTS: The walnuts in these cookies are optional, but they add a really nice crunch and go really well with the maple flavours. If you prefer to use all chocolate chips, simply replace ½ cup walnuts with ¼ cup chocolate chips. You can also substitute the walnuts for pecans!
Alternatively, you can leave out the chocolate chips and make maple walnut cookies by using a ¾ cup total of chopped walnuts instead.
