My husband LOVED these even though he doesn't usually like sweets much. They were also a very big hit with friends who tried them. I used wholemeal flour and replaced the sour cream with natural yoghurt because it's what I had on hand. Next time I'll cut the sugar down to half a cup because there's so much chocolate in them. All up, very tasty, very easy cookies.
These are certainly easy to put together! I made the recipe as written and the cookies definately need at least 10 minutes, even 12, in the oven. I have a strong suspicsion that the brown sugar could likely be cut in half with no adverse affect - the maple flavor is spot on.
These cookies are soft and chewy. It was easy to make alright and since I was watching my sugar, I used sugar free maple syrup. Since most cookie recipes require alot of sugar and having to use cups of sugar substitutes comes out a bit expensive, having a recipe that calls for maple syrup instead is indeed great. Thank you.
I was looking for something a little different to make with my kids and saw this recipe. It's easy and very tasty. I used spelt flour because that is what I had on hand. WOW! These cookies will become a family favorite!
