Ingredients

Cookie

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

Glaze

1 cup
powdered sugar
2 tablespoons
maple syrup
1 teaspoon
Land O Lakes® Butter, melted
2 to 3 teaspoons
milk

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  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. Shape dough into 1-inch balls, flouring hands, if necessary. Shape half of balls into 4-inch logs.
  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. Place wire cooling racks over waxed paper. Cool cookies 2 minutes on cookie sheets; remove to cooling racks. Cool completely.
  6. Combine all glaze ingredients in bowl, adding enough milk for desired consistency. Drizzle over broom handles.

Made these as plain ol' circular cookies for a New Year's Eve party, and they were gone in less than an hour. The glaze was a little too sweet for me, but since the cookie dough was relatively un-sweet it definitely brought balance.
