I chose these as a last-minute addition to my Thanskgiving 2015 menu after seeing a recipe online and remembering that a friend had never tried maple syrup before. Turns out, they were even more popular than the store-bought dessert and went like hotcakes! Even my significant other, who doesn't like maple syrup and isn't a big fan of oatmeal, couldn't stop eating them! I found the original oatmeal amount a bit much, so I've reduced it here. I also found these cookies were better the day after being baked. I also left the batter to sit in the fridge overnight, although the original recipes says to let it sit for at least 3 hours to allow the oatmeal to soften up and absorb the flavors.
