Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
Unique and Delicious!
Just made a batch for the first time and I'm very happy that I found this recipe! They are light, moist and wonderfully different than the typical chocolate chip cookie. I'm sure I'll be making these again and again.
I couldn't find maple flavoring, so I used almond extract. Oh my, these cookies are now a family favorite. They are very sweet, but oh so good!! If you can make chocolate chip cookies from scratch, you can certainly do these!! MMM Very good!
If you are looking for something besides choclate chip to bake, these are great! I took some to work as a pre-tasting to our office cookie exchange and overwhelming majority said to include them! The cookies are very sweet. I made some with and without the icing. Either way, they are VERY tasty!
I just baked these cookies, they are wonderful. I also did not put the frosting on them. They were sweet enough without it.
I just finished baking a batch of these cookies and they are already a family favorite. The maple flavor is not too overpowering, and the cookies are moist and tasty. I substituted 1 cup of butterscotch morsels for the white chocolate, baking them at 370 for 10 minutes. I plan to save some to share with coworkers tomorrow, and I only do that with my best results!
