In a medium bowl, cream the shortening and brown sugar, then gradually add the eggs, maple flavor, sour cream, and maple syrup, and beat until light and fluffy. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together. Add to creamed mixture and blend thoroughly.

Cover and refrigerate for approximately 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Using a cookie scoop, to help keep all the cookies uniform in size, place mounds of cookie dough on baking sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

Meanwhile make the maple frosting. Beat butter, maple flavor, and confectioner’s sugar until smooth.  Add in milk 1 tablespoon at a time.

Frost cookies when completely cooled.

*If you want more of a glaze, add frosting to cookies when they are still warm and the frosting will melt.
