1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted (1 stick)
1/2 cup maple sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon maple extract (optional, I guess, but it really enhances the maple flavor)
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup walnuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter just the bottom of an 8x8 baking pan.
In a large bowl, beat together butter, maple sugar and syrup.
Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in extracts.
In a separate bowl, mix together flour, soda and salt.
Add dry mixture to wet ingredients. Stir lightly to combine.
Add walnuts and stir lightly until evenly distributed.
Pour into prepared pan, pushing gently into corners.
Bake 30-40 minutes until firm in the center. Edges will be golden brown.
Cool before cutting into 16 squares.
Store in an airtight container.
