Peanut Butter Maple Cookies

From Quick Cooking Magazine. These are scrumptious - my favorite peanut butter cookies! Using all butter makes them nice and crisp--if you prefer softer cookies, replace 1/2 cup of the butter with 1/2 cup shortening.

I found this recipe in Taste of Home Freezer Pleasers Cookbook, and this recipe goes in the Peanut Butter Cookie Hall of Fame. I actually had some pure maple syrup which is delicious. I substituted butterscotch chips for peanut butter chips, and I might even like it better. This one is a keeper. Thank you for posting this delicious recipe!

These cookies make a delicious and festive-looking autumn treat! I used Mini Reese's Pieces and the half butter & half shortening option. The cookies were still a little crispy, but in a good way. I took them to work and received many compliments and some recipe requests! Thanks for posting a great recipe!
