Swedish Butter Cookies

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Connie K

From 'Taste of Home Cookies' - These are a crisp butter cookie with a secret ingredient. What coffee does for chocolate, the very small amount of maple syrup does for these butter cookies - rich, buttery, mmmmm! The dough rolls into logs and I cut with a pizza cutter for quick production.

These cookies are delicious. Inhaled by everyone in the family. I will not roll in logs next time.
