Soft and light maple cookies dipped in a sweet maple glaze and topped with crushed pecans. So easy and tastes like a glazed maple donut!

For the maple glaze:
Make it Gluten Free: Use gluten free all-purpose flour, ideally one with xanthan gum for structure!
Make it Vegan: Use unsalted vegan stick butter, or if you don’t have this you can try using 1/3 cup coconut oil (make sure it is melted and cooled). To replace the egg, I’d recommend 3 tbsp aquafaba (the liquid from a chickpea can) and possibly a bit more baking soda (try 1 1/2 tsp total). I have not tried these swaps, and the texture of the cookies will not be the same.
Make it Nut Free: Omit the chopped pecans. If you want a bit of crunch, try adding chopped sunflower seeds, sprinkles, or crumbled graham crackers.
