Maple🍁 Shortbread with Maple Glaze
This recipe for Maple Shortbread are prepared in a decorative shortbread baking pan by Nordicware. I don’t even remember where or when I purchased this pan but I’m pretty sure I found it at the Dig n’ Dive I n Appleton WI, which is a store similar to Goodwill except that you dig and dive for your purchases and you pay by the pound.
Recently, we have started to remodel our kitchen (again) and I found this pan in the back of a cabinet that I very seldom open. One of those “lost in space” cabinets. I have several Nordicware pans, so I was surprised when I found this pan. Surprised and happy. I was thrilled that I found the pan when it was in “season” and not in the summer months when it would have no doubt been lost in space to me again. I couldn’t wait to try out my “new” shortbread pan.
Maple Shortbread are buttery and delicious. The maple glaze gives the shortbread just the right amount of sweet, maple goodness.🍁 Even though Maple🍁 season is technically in the spring, I always associate maple and maple syrup with winter. Maybe that’s because maple syrup is drizzled over so many breakfast comfort foods such as; pancakes, waffles, and french toast or maybe because it’s because maple syrup is used as an ingredient in fall/winter comfort foods such as squash, sweet potatoes and pumpkin. Maple syrup is also delicious when incorporated into frosting or glaze.
Recipe Note: Maple Extract
When using maple extract in this recipe it’s best to spend a little extra and purchase a good quality extract. We like Watkins spices, extracts and flavorings. Why, do you ask? Because we love their products. (we haven’t even been asked nor did we get paid to write that) Here at Turnips 2 Tangerines we enjoy passing on to our readers quality products that we like and use in our kitchen. Watkins and Nordicware are both Minnesota based companies and sell “Made in America” products.
