I have not tried this recipe. I'm posting this recipe for safe keeping. I got this recipe from Fruit Sweet And Sugar Free cookbook. Crunchy, buttery, and maple flavored, these exceptional maple walnut cookies or the delicious variations quickly become everyone's favorite.

- 1Preheat the oven to 350.
- 2Toast the walnuts in a preheated oven for 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let the nuts cool. Then process in a food processor, using the pulse action, until they are finely ground. Do not overprocess or you will end up with a paste.
- 3Cream together the butter and maple syrup. When light and fluffy, add the egg and beat well for 1 minute. Stir in the extracts, then the flour, and the finely ground nuts. Cover the dough and refrigerate it for 20 minutes to make it easier to handle.
- 4Preheat the oven to 350. Line baking sheets with baking paper.
- 5Using a #24 scoop (2 tablespoons) or a spoon, scoop out the dough and place the balls 1-inch apart on the baking sheets. With lightly moistened fingers, flattern each cookie to a thickness of 1/2 inch.
- 6Bake the cookies until golden brown, for 15-18 minutes on an insulated or double pan.
- 7Let the cookies cool on the pans before removing.
