Vermont Maple Pecan Bar Cookies, a chewy and dense bar cookie, rich with autumnal maple pecan flavoring.
And then Starbucks began promoting their new Maple Pecan Latte. Everywhere.
Every time I went to the market, I saw that delicious looking latte, calling my name. It was impossible to resist.
Because for me… fall is all about maple-y kinds of flavors. Along with pumpkin spice, for sure. In fact, the Chicago Tribune says this year Starbucks, “maple is ‘sharing the spotlight’ with pumpkin.”
A delightful and delicious combination. It’s not mutually exclusive. An either… or. It’s a both.
And so I began thinking about such things as maple bars and wanted to make an easy but delicious bar cookie to share with family and friends this season.
This is that cookie. And it does make me think about maple bar donuts.
When I first began developing and testing the recipe, I tried to make them without the maple extract. While good, the maple flavor wasn’t pungent enough for me. The addition of the maple extract added that little something extra, reminiscent of maple-y deliciousness.
