This would make a great addition to your Shortbread Collection. Slightly crispy but retains that 'melt in your mouth' quality. The maple flavour is delicate. Very easy to make. My maple leaf cookie cutter measures 3-1/2" wide, and yielded 24 cookies. This is the companion recipe to Recipe #336430, also from King Arthur Flour. Chilling time is not included in the prep time.
