Recipe by Donna Corbin

This is one of my dad's favorite cookies that I make for Christmas every year. They are not an overpowering maple but you can definitely tell they are maple. For the Maple Frosting, see the other recipe I have listed called, you guessed it, Maple Frosting.

I am on a cooking binge of baking cookies and I made these....they turned out scrumptious...smelled up the house yummy.
