These cookies are wonderful. I did add the coconut and it just added something extra to the flavor. It is a wonderful cookie. I took them out of the oven after 10 minutes. I entered them in the Pennsylvania Maple Festival in Meyersdale and took 1st place with this recipe.
I liked this recipe a lot. I did add a 1/2 tsp of maple flavoring and some precooked bacon.. Made the recipe even better... yummm!
A nice, simple, basic cookie. Nothing special, just a very plain cookie. Easy and quick to make. Not too sweet and the coconut adds a pleasant nuttiness that compliments the maple taste. I would highly recommend adding the coconut.
These are very good. Nice and soft. The maple flavor is not as strong as I thought it would be. A very sweet cookie.
They were even better than I expected them to be. I should have read the recipe more carefully because I overlooked the part about greasing the cookie sheet and they stuck to the pan. I didn't add the coconut because I thought the maple syrup and the coconut seemed like an odd combination, but maybe I'll try it next time. Thanks for the recipe!
These cookies are soooo delicious! I didn't add coconut either, but a little extra flour so they wouldn't be goopy. This will be an awesome addition during maple syrup time.
These are my favourite cookies from now on. They are sooooooooooooooooooo gooooooood! We call them pancake cookies because that IS what they taste like. I got about 50 cookies (I rolled them into balls from about a teaspoon full) and they were still a good size since they do spread out quite a bit. So easy and I always have the ingredients on hand, but I did leave out the coconut as a personal preference. Thanks!
I really liked these cookies but I had some trouble with these. I used high grade syrup and they still turned out really gooey. The dough was sticky and hard to work with and I hoped that they would cook up nicely. But when I cooked these up they were really thin, and never really became a "cookie." They stayed crunchy in the outside and almost toffee like and they never really set up. I will definitely be trying these again, as the flavor was very nice.
A very nice cookie that was published in the 1999 Taste of Home cookbook...I must confess I haven't made them with the coconut either, but ONE day!
