This is a very nice simple recipe! My one piece of advice: DO NOT SKIMP ON THE FLOUR! There is so much butter in these that they really need all of the flour. In fact, when I turned the dough out onto the board to roll, I kneaded another 1/4 - 1/2 cup of flour into it. It really needs to be very stiff so the cookies don't melt in the oven.<br/><br/>If you want added maple flavor, add 1 tsp of maple flavoring to the dough. Purely a personal preference :)
