I have to say that I was a bit disappointed with this recipe. Although a very tastey cookie, I could not taste the maple at all. The recipe mixed up well and baked beautifully. I rolled them in a white sugar/maple sugar mix. I'm the baker at a local Farmer's Market so thought I would bake these for maple season. I let a co-worker taste one and she could not tell me what type of cookie it was, even with the maple sugar on top. It makes a delicious brown sugar cookie - but not maple. Today I did make another batch and added 2 tsps. of maple extract as well and omitted the vanilla. Tomorrow when I go back into work I'll see if it's better with the addition of the extract (they weren't baked off yet when I left today). The recipe does have promise! Followup: So now I've tasted the cookie with the maple extract and it is a beautiful cookie! The extract absolutely makes all the difference. I will make these cookies again but only with the addition of the maple extract.


These cookies needed something so I put on a maple glaze. They turned out better this way. I used 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup maple syrup and just enough milk to make it spredable. YUMMY


These were very good and not too sweet as some maple cookies can be. The maple flavor was subtle, so if you want a more pronounced maple flavor add 1/2 tsp. maple extract.
