French Toast Spirals

These little spiral cookies taste just like French toast. They're not too sweet, and they're pretty enough for a Christmas cookie plate. —Ellen Riley, Murfreesboro, Tennessee

    4 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • FILLING:
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • Confectioners' sugar, optional

Directions

  • Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, maple syrup and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, salt and cinnamon; gradually beat into creamed mixture. On a baking sheet, roll dough between 2 sheets of waxed paper into a 12-in. square. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
  • For filling, beat first 5 ingredients until blended. Remove top sheet of waxed paper; spread filling over dough to within 1/4 in. of edges. Using waxed paper, roll up tightly jelly-roll style, removing paper as you roll. Wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 375°. Unwrap and cut dough crosswise into 1/4-in. slices. Place 2 in. apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until edges are light brown, 12-14 minutes. Cool on pans 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks to finish cooling. If desired, dust with confectioners' sugar.
