Easy to put together & taste good too. I thought they would have more maple flavor...the nuts seem to be the prominent though. Read More

I thought these were quite good. I made 1/2 recipe and got 20 cookies. I cut it in two pieces then instead of 3 to refridgerate for 1 hour. They remind me of the marriage of a pecan sandie cookie and a soft maple shortbread flavored cookie. They have both a crisp and soft texture. I liked that they weren't too sweet to. I liked them better the next day: They tasted like a big soft version of a windmill cookie without the spicy after taste or cinnamon. Read More

I got raves about this recipe from my friends at our cookie exchange. The only difference is that I used walnuts that were already roasted with sugar salt and vanilla. Read More
