Jan H.'s Note:
I make this often, I believe it came from an old Good Housekeeping magazine, judging from the cliping. Original recipe called for maple syrup or maple-flavor syrup. I've tried both. Use the real thing, the maple-flavored gives it hardly any flavor at all. Also, the cookies seem to "ripen" after a couple of days. These are very good.
