      Have been in search of a maple sandwich cookie as good as those sold by zingerman's, and I believe this is the winning recipe. These cookies are stellar, well worth the time and calories. They were difficult to give away because I wanted to eat them ALL! Do yourself and your friends a favor and try this incredible recipe. You won't regret it.

      This recipe was very well metered out; there was just enough frosting for each cookie. The dough handled beautifully (sometimes cookie dough that needs to be rolled is difficult to handle--sticky or to stiff). This was just right! The only downside to these cookies are the fat content--they tasted delicious, but have so much butter, how could they not? Thanks Burgundy for a great recipe.

      This is a great cookie for those that love maple,and everyone in my house does! I didn't have maple flavoring,can't find it in me to use artifical ingredients in my cooking.So I used vanilla instead and it was fine. Thanks for posting this recipe.
