  1. These were good. They were very easy to mix up, and the family devoured them. I was a little disappointed that they didn't have as much maple flavor as I anticipated, but they were still very good. Thanks!
  2. Awesome cookies! These were so easy to mix up, and the dough reminded me very much of molasses cookies. The flavor and texture were similar as well, except of course the flavor was rich and subtle sweetness of maple rather than the sharpness of molasses. I used maple flavoring rather than vanilla in the frosting, and my future step son just couldn't get enough of these. He and his friend ate about 2 dozen of them quite quickly! Definitely a repeat recipe.


Hi Everyone! I have just changed my image here on 'zaar. The big bird in the pic is none other than me, BirdyBaker. It was from Halloween 04. I made the costume myself and it was so much fun!. I am a highschool student and I love photography,painting crafts and everything else artistic. I LOVE to write, anything, from essays to fiction to poetry. It's so much fun! I also am very interested in Asian culture and want to work in Japan someday. I have a passion for cooking and try to cook as much as I can, trying to make a different dish each time. I am just crazy over my 3 birds, George Arthur, Bailey and Jazzy, hence the name "BirdyBaker"
