We have made these before, they are really cool looking. Called Santa Hat Brownies. They are simple to make.

These are really excellent! perfect for Christmas...

Canadian Maple Cookies

Ingredients

o 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
o 1 cup brown sugar, packed
o 1 eggs
o 1 cup real maple syrup
o 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
o 4 cups all-purpose flour
o 2 teaspoons baking soda
o 1/2 teaspoon salt
o 1/3 cup granulated sugar
o chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Grease several cookie sheets. (I use parchment paper)
3. In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar; add egg, maple syrup and vanilla, mixing until well blended.
4. Sift or whisk together flour, baking soda and salt; add this mixture to creamed mixture and stir until well blended. mix in chopped nuts, if desired.
5. Shape into 1 inch balls and roll in sugar.
6. Place balls on cookie sheets about 2 inches apart and flatten slightly.
7. Bake 8 to 10 minutes; remove and let cool on a wire rack.

NOTE: for a thicker, plumper cookie, refrigerate dough for about ˝ hour before cooking… for a flat cookie, use ingredients at room temperature…

Made these for the first time for my cookie trays and they were very good and will be on again in the future.

I have made these in the past and they are always popular. They are usually all eaten quickly which is a good thing as they don't keep long after decorated.

Not sure this is really a Christmas dessert recipe, but I made this Crockpot chocolate lava cake yesterday and everyone loved it! It is super simple and sinfully rich! It would be great also for a football party or casual NYE party. We had some leftovers, and I'm not sure how good they will be though.
