Cut in to 20 maple leaf shapes using a cookie cutter then transfer leaves to an ungreased baking sheet. Transfer the baking sheet to refrigerator and chill 15 minutes. Meanwhile preheat oven to 350 degrees.

4. Transfer from fridge to preheated oven and bake until edges are lightly golden, about 14 – 16 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet several minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining disk of dough.

For the glaze:

In a medium mixing bowl whisk together powdered sugar, maple syrup and maple extract while adding in half and half 1/2 tsp at a time to thin as needed (glaze should be somewhat thick, similar to an icing). Spread glaze over completely cooled cookies. Let rest at room temperature to allow glaze to set. Store in an airtight container. Makes approx 40 cookies. – Per WW recipe builder 1 cookie is 4SP, 2 for 7SP or 3 for 11SP.
