  1. a lot of recipes freeze the dough so its more tender did anyone do that or think it needed that?


  1. Excellent cookie. I chilled the dough for an hour, and it was easy to work with.
  2. Words can't describe and occurs can't express the wonderful aroma that's permeating the house while baking these cookies!

  3. What a wonderful version of a sugar cookie. My dough was very sticky so I had to add extra flour ( it was very humid here) after 1/2 a cup extra was still very sticky so I chilled the dough. That worked out perfect. I thought for sure i was back at the sugar camp when these were baking YUM. They are such a simple wonderful cookies. A little crunch on the outside from the sugar and wonderfully tender on the inside. I used REAL Canadian Maple syrup. Definite keeper and one of the Divine recipes for us. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag
  4. I was disappointed. It was an OK-ish cookie but nothing really special. I was expecting more maple flavor. My first batch came out underdone, so I cooked the second batch longer and that was better, but still uninspiring.
  5. Thanks so much for this... I loved it. Did mine without the sugar coating. Just for something different.

  1. No sugar coating.
  2. We did make changes, we added 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 ounce (half the bottle) of maple flavoring, a cup of walnuts and we refrigerated the dough. We added Vietnamese cinnamon to the finishing sugar too. It took the full 10 minutes to bake. We used a 1oz. ice cream scoop to make even cookies and ended up with about 70.
  3. I added maple extract to make the maple pop more! Supper delicious and super easy. Would recommend this recipe!!!!
  4. I did substitute, using whole spelt flour instead of white and coconut oil in stead of butter and used coconut sugar instead of white sugar. in order to cream the coconut oil, its necessary to warm oil and then blend with the maple syrup to make it creamy.
