These treats are "hauntingly divine"!:) Wish I could bring the whole sky down for you for this one. These were enjoyed by all and I had to hide some for my dad who is out of town at the moment. Once these were baked(after step 5), I let these remain in the oven for 35 minutes. After that, I removed them onto a wire rack and allowed to cool completely. Then, stored them in an airtight container. Thank you for the incredible cookies:)

Good tasting; extremely quick and easy; and some versatility because I think you could make some additions or substitutions to your own taste. I used a Yellow Cake Mix (did not have a White one) -- worked just fine. I baked the first pan about 12 mins... and the second pan about 10 mins. It was great because the longer baking time gives you a really crisp cookie, and the shorter time makes them pleasantly soft. This is a super great recipe for 'cookies in a hurry'... and yummy to boot!

Fabulous cookie recipe Inez! The family totally fell for these maple gems. I used a .5 ounce / 39 mm cookie scoop and I got exactly 36 (3 dozen) cookies. Very quick and simple and oh what a heavenly aroma wafting through the house. I'm submitting a photo in gratitude of your sharing such a tasty cookie. Thanks again Inez!
