    Chef Dee's Note:

    A pretty cookie with a mellow Maple flavour, perfect for your Christmas trays. I am posting this recipe for safe keeping. Of all the cookies my dear Aunt made for Christmas, this has been my favourite for many years.

      This one is definitely a 5 star cookie with my family. My sister absolutely loves them. I lost the recipe a few years ago when one of my children ruined my cookbook and am so happy to have found it again. Out of the hundreds of cookies I've made over the years this is one of the easiest and best tasting ones.

      Liked the flavor, but I followed the directions exactly and mine spread, did not stay round like the picture.
