Maple Sugar Cookies
A true family company, Inthewoods Sugar Bush has been passed down for generations in the Wagner family. Together, their family mixes maple traditions with the latest technology to make their products. Their maple syrup is award winning, and has claimed multiple Best-in-Show and blue-ribbon awards. Located on the shores of Lake Michigan in Manitowoc, they tap approximately 1,300 maple trees each year. On average, these maple trees must be at least 40 years old before being tapped for the first time.
Pure Wisconsin maple syrup is not only delicious on waffles and pancakes, but is also great for cooking and baking. The recipe below is made with pure maple syrup, giving the cookies great flavor and color. For the freshest taste, be sure to use real Wisconsin butter. Cooking and baking with local butter is a sustainable and smart choice for your family. Local products have a smaller carbon footprint and travel less distance from the farm, to your local store, and into your kitchen. And when it comes to irreplaceable flavor and texture, real butter makes a huge difference.
