Beat together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla extract, molasses, and maple syrup.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and spices. Mix dry ingredients into butter mixture until just incorporated. With your hand, knead dough until smooth. Divide into 2 balls and wrap with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
When ready to bake, let dough come to room temperature before rolling out. Roll to 1/4 inch thick. Cut out cookies and place on parchment lined baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes. Let cool completely.
Once cool, decorate cookies with icing.
