maple sandwich cookies
6 portions



  • 1 cup flour
  • 50ml pure Canadian maple syrup (preferably dark syrup for its robust taste)
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 8 tbsp softened salted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 1 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • 1/8 cup powdered sugar


  1. For the biscuits: ensure that the butter is at room temperature and soft (but not melted).
  2. Add in the maple syrup and whisk together. Sift in the baking powder and the flour in ¼ cup increments and mix until fully combined (it should be crumbly).
  3. Place the mixture on a large piece of clingfilm, and twist/tie the edges of it together to form the mixture in one solid piece of dough.
  4. When the dough has formed, open the cling film and get another piece to place on top so that the dough is sandwiched between the two.
  5. Then, use your hands to flatten a bit and keep the dough together, before using a rolling pin to roll it out to roughly ½cm thick.
  6. Use a small cookie cutter to cut out the biscuits. Place them spaced apart on a lined baking tray, and put it in the oven for 12-15mins at 170°c/355F.
  7. Leave to cool completely before adding the filling.
  8. To make the filling, add the filling ingredients to a bowl and whisk on high for about 10-15 seconds.
  9. Spoon between ½-1 tsp of the filling per biscuit.

More about maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple spread comes from the sap of the maple tree that’s all.
