Swedish Butter Cookies

"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."

    The ingredients sound delicious, but the instructions are confusing. You bake the logs and then cut them which, must make small, somewhat round cookies. So how did you get rectangular cookies like those pictured?

    I want to make these - how do you get the rectangular cookies from the (circular?) logs - do the cookies flatten out on their own?

    Awesome! The texture & flavor are incredible, yet simple. Found recipe thanks to my daughter needing a dish from our culture and she wanted cookies. YUMMMMM! :) llt
