I made this but used almost double the brown sugar. I also cooked in a 9x13 pan for more like 30 min then cut into bars while warm and boy is this good! Especially if you like brown sugar! It ends up nice and chewy.


I make these quite often (they retain shapes nicly). They're also handy (sturdy) when you have to send goodies in the mail. Great flavor and nice texture (I tend to underbake these slightly).


I tried this recipe again and made a few changes. I added 1/2 tsp. of maple extract to the maple syrup to add taste. Then, when the cookies were almost cooled, I glazed them with a mixture of sifted icing sugar, milk and maple extract. Use the back of a spoon to spread over cookie, then let set. These turned out wonderful! I cut them in the shape of maple leaves.
