overconfident maple marshmallow cookies
Overconfident but aware - it’s knowing something might not work but going for it anyways. It’s feeling certain with a hint of the unknown, it’s reckless with a thoughtful gaze, it’s bold yet carefully so. It’s a rare, and exciting, mix of emotions.
It’s the perfect storm and the best conditions for tackling THE list. The list that’s been filled with every intriguing, exciting, unexpected thought that’s low priority but still too interesting to ignore. It’s time to work off the list, take the risk, have your fun, and do it again tomorrow. Enjoy this overconfident mood (and bake)!
I'm feeling...

with a maple-y, marshmallow-y goodness,
that’s perfectly balanced in taste and texture,
with a strangely satisfying, fun, engaging vibe that fills the room,
and that’s a true indication to enjoy this mood more often...

Makes 18 cookies
  • ½ cup (113 g) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¾ cup (161 g) brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp (28 g) white sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • ½ teaspoon maple extract

Preheat the oven to 325˚F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add the butter to a medium bowl and whisk until smooth. Add the sugars to the butter and mix until creamy.
Add the egg yolks, maple extract, and maple syrup, mixing well after each addition.
It’s fun, it’s confident, it’s a moody boost in the right direction.
Fold in the flour, baking soda and salt.
Stir in the marshmallows.
The smells in the air are warm and enticing.
Take the dough by the tablespoon and roll it into balls. Flatten each ball slightly before placing onto the baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the cookies are a light golden brown at the edges.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
These cookies are a mood to linger over. Enjoy them as you do all the things on your list and remember to savour every moment!

Feel. Bake. Better.
It’s not just about baking something to get you through the day.
It’s not about eating the whole tray to feel better.
It’s about getting lost in the process.
It’s about enjoying every moment.
It’s about sharing it with people that support and care about you.
Baking can be a lot of things – it can be distracting but simple, it can be movement with focus, it can be whatever you need when you need it. Choose a recipe to fit the mood and it becomes a useful tool as well – baking to quiet the mind, to connect with your emotions, or simply baking to feel emotional. Just think of the feelings you get and the emotions you experience when baking your favourite dessert…. excitement, relief, fulfillment, joy, accomplishment.
