These little maple balls are so buttery, they just melt in your mouth! Better make a double recipe of the delicious cookies, cause your going to need lots! If you don't have any maple extract on hand, just use 2 tsp vanilla instead, it just won't have the maple flavouring, but they are still great.
These are rich, yummy layered squares that require no bowl or mixing. They are very easy to make and come out wonderful. (I have no idea where the name came from...got these out of a 30 year old women's club cookbook.) 12/23/08: Butter amount changed to reflect the advice and opinions in reviews. Thanks!
This is posted in reponse to a request. I have not made this recipe. It is from the "Gifts for the Cookie Jar" cookbook and is described as a cookie for chocoholics. Times are guesstimates for jar mix preparation.
My mom made these every Christmas and we SO looked forward to them. The dough is almost like a shortbread and kind of melts in your mouth. I often make a double batch, using half red cherries and half green. Enjoy!
Rich and buttery, My Grandmother made these for us when I was a kid. If you don't have almond extract, you can use 2 teaspoons of vanilla in its place. Any type of nuts can be used in place of the walnuts.
