Maple Meltaways
December 14, 2011

I am trying to make a variety of flavors of Christmas cookies and picked this one. One of the reviewers thought the cookies tasted floury. I actually thought the opposite and thought, for the amount of sugar, they tasted rather sugary and a little crunchy. For some reason, I was thinking they would be like shortbread, but not at all. I did not have any pecans, and wanted the maple flavor to stand out. I used a modified version of a maple icing from another cookie recipe on the site. I made 1/2 recipe and got 18 cookies with a cookie scoop. My favorite part of the cookie was the icing, but I am actually reviewing the cookie. Based on the picture, I was surprised that these cookies spread quite a bit to, so make sure to leave them in a mound. They also get even more crispy as they cool, which I didn't care for, but that could possibly help with that. I wish these would have worked for Christmas. I put them out, but they didn't get eaten like the others. It could have been because they were so flat, but for me it was the texture and sugary taste of the cookie.
