I made this but used almost double the brown sugar. I also cooked in a 9x13 pan for more like 30 min then cut into bars while warm and boy is this good! Especially if you like brown sugar! It ends up nice and chewy. Read More

Will not make again. The cookies weren't very flavorful and were too crisp for my taste. I much prefer traditional shortbread. Read More

I tried this recipe again and made a few changes. I added 1/2 tsp. of maple extract to the maple syrup to add taste. Then when the cookies were almost cooled I glazed them with a mixture of sifted icing sugar milk and maple extract. Use the back of a spoon to spread over cookie then let set. These turned out wonderful! I cut them in the shape of maple leaves. Read More

I make these quite often (they retain shapes nicly). They're also handy (sturdy) when you have to send goodies in the mail. Great flavor and nice texture (I tend to underbake these slightly). Read More

Nice hint of maple flavour. Just watch that you don't bake too long - they get rather hard! Read More

These were delicious. I cut them out with a maple leaf cookie cutter and colored the dough with orange gold and burgundy food colors to look like fall leaves. Thanks for a great recipe. Read More

This recipe is very easy to make with children and they enjoy using cookie cutters to cut out various Christmas shapes however the baked cookies are very greasy tasting and crisper than regular shortbread. I would not make them again. Read More

I ended up cutting the recipe in half with the exception of the brown sugar and the maple syrup i added about a 1/4 cup maple syrup and 1 cup of brown sugar. I also rolled it out to a half inch on a cookie sheet and cut it into bars which turned out nice and chewy Read More
