I had never had maple sugar cookies before, but I was very impressed. These are not super sweet - just perfect with hot tea or coffee. The hint of lemon is perfect! I used real maple sugar, not the fake stuff. I did add a slight bit more milk to the batter as it was very, very dry. Cooked 15 minutes and they came out super! I will keep this recipe. Thanks!
