So delicious!! I made these for a bridal tea. Very moist cookie with a smooth maple flavor. I used vanilla chips which added great taste and texture. The creamy frosty added extra sweetness. They looked beautiful and were enjoyed by me and my guests. Thanks Nurse Di.

I let my nieces help me make these cookies, which was my first mistake because we were covered from head to toe in flour. But inspite of all that, the cookies turned out just fine. They had a yummy maple flavor and tasted great right out of the oven. The frosting was realllly sweet but that is what makes it so good. Thanks Nurse Di.
