    s'kat's Note:

    This is an old Gourmet recipe. The actual recipe used a maple leaf cookie cutter, but as you can see from the photo, I only had hearts. Very nice, mellow, maple-ish flavour. While these taste nice unglazed, the additional punch of maple takes it over the top.

      These were tasty and enjoyed by everyone at the dinner party, but nothing so amazing that I would repeat again. Since it is maple syruping season, I had wanted a cookie cutter recipe using our maple syrup and this met the criteria. I thought they were a little boring, not quite as mapley as I wanted (admittedly I like very strong flavors/spices). To be fair, I did not make the frosting, just used a maple glaze over as they were drying. Maybe the frosting is what is needed to bring it together, but since it was a sugar frosting I didn't bother.

      Exquisite - used amber maple syrup purchased from a young guy in Upstate NY who makes it himself. This crisp buttery delicious cookies will be hard to share (but I will). We skipped the icing - they are perfect as is. Thanks for a real keeper, s'kat!

      Amazing maple flavor. Made the cookie recipe exactly, but I added maple flavor to the glaze. It seemed the maple flavor intensified over a few days. Delicious!!!
