Total Time



1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts

1/4 teaspoon salt


1 cup powdered sugar

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 teaspoon Land O Lakes® Butter, melted

2 to 3 teaspoons milk

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine 1/2 cup butter and brown sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add maple syrup, egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add all remaining cookie ingredients; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Shape dough into 1-inch balls, flouring hands, if necessary. Shape half of balls into 4-inch logs.

  4. STEP 4

    Place logs, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Place 1 ball at top of each log; flatten ball slightly. Make 5 to 6 cuts into flattened ball with sharp knife to resemble strips of straw. Bake 10-12 minutes or until cookies are set.

  5. STEP 5

    Place wire cooling racks over waxed paper. Cool cookies 2 minutes on cookie sheets; remove to cooling racks. Cool completely.

  6. STEP 6

    Combine all glaze ingredients in bowl, adding enough milk for desired consistency. Drizzle over broom handles.

Tip #1

Real maple syrup is created by boiling the sap from maple trees. It has a thick, syrupy consistency and a sweet, maple flavor. Imitation maple syrup is mostly corn syrup with a small amount of maple flavoring. Either syrup can be used in this recipe.
