Bart & Dar’s Non-dairy Maple cookies

April 24th, 2015 – Years ago, on cold, raw days like this, my Dad would say, “C’mon, let’s go cut a jag of wood.” The weather was never of any consequence to him, and off we’d go, always coming home to a warm house and a treat to enjoy before heading to the barn to milk. I made these cookies from Mom’s Maple Syrup Cookbook today, embellishing each one with some maple cream.


  • 1 1/4 c. flour
  • 1 1/4 c. coconut
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 c. maple syrup
  • 1/4 c. water
  • 1/4 c. oil


  • Combine flour, coconut, and baking powder. Whisk together maple syrup, water and oil. Stir mixtures together. Roll into balls and bake 12 minutes in a 350 degree oven on a greased cookie sheet. I cooled them before frosting with pure Vermont maple cream.
