What a wonderful version of a sugar cookie. My dough was very sticky so I had to add extra flour ( it was very humid here) after 1/2 a cup extra was still very sticky so I chilled the dough. That worked out perfect. I thought for sure i was back at the sugar camp when these were baking YUM. They are such a simple wonderful cookies. A little crunch on the outside from the sugar and wonderfully tender on the inside. I used REAL Canadian Maple syrup. Definite keeper and one of the Divine recipes for us.

Excellent cookie dough texture, cookie is soft yet chewy yet crispy on edges. (13 min in a convection oven for me). Perfect cookie. However, there was not a strong maple flavor. They are excellent tasting but I could not tell it was maple. I made half and am going to run to store for maple chips or something maple flavor to chop up in it...just a little and they will be better than perfect!
if the finished cookie is as good as the dough, I will be very happy. As a Canadian transplant to southern US this dough is too sticky to roll w/out adding at least 1/2 cup flour and chilling for 1 hr.
