Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 40

1/2 Cup(s) Butter, no substitutes
1/2 Cup(s) Packed brown sugar
1 Teaspoon(s) Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 Egg
3 Tablespoon(s) Pure maple syrup or
maple-flavor syrup
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Vanilla
1 3/4 Cup(s) All-Purpose Flour
Orange paste food coloring
Red paste food coloring
BEAT butter in a medium mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium
to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, baking powder, and
salt; beat till comhined. Beat in egg, maple syrup, and vanilla. Beat
in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any
remaining flour with a wooden spoon. DlVlDE dough into thirds. Leave
one portion plain. Knead orange paste food coloring into another
portion. Knead red paste food coloring into remaining portion. Chill
dough for 1 hour or till easy to handle. ROLL about a third of each
color dough into I0-inch ropes on a lightly floured surface. Twist
ropes together; fold in crosswise and flatten slightly. Roll 1/8 inch
thick (keep remaining dough refrigerated). Cut with leaf-shape cookie
cutters . Place cutouts 1 inch apart on greased cookie sheets. Score
veins with a table knife or skewer. Gently gather and reroll scraps.
Repeat with remaining dough. BAKE in a 375 degree oven 7 to 9 minutes
or till edges begin to brown. Cool on wire racks. NOTES : Be sure to
use paste food coloring. Liquid coloring softens the dough so it's
hard to handle and cutouts lose there shape. Recipe by: Better Homes
