    Unique and Delicious!

    Michelle Ingram from ,

    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.

    yummmmmy

    KIMBERLY MCRAE from PORTERVILLE, CA

    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!

    Great Cookie

    Gail Milton from Arlington, TN

    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!

    Wonderful

    Stacy C. from Indianapolis

    I just baked these cookies, they are wonderful. I also did not put the frosting on them. They were sweet enough without it.

    Outstanding flavor!

    Erin Brooks from Loganville, GA

    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!

    Not a favorite

    Karen Moltz from Tuscaloosa, AL

    While visiting my sister-in-law on vacation we made these cookies. These are our least favorite cookie and the family did not like them either. Will not make again.

    Good or Better ?

    darlene drylie from , salem/nh

    My family & I thought this was a recipe to be taped inside the cupboard door. The next time I made them I used maple flavoring instead of vanilla & my kids friends have their moms calling for the recipe.

    Sweet bite

    Zoila Carroll from Flushing, NY

    The recipe itself was very easy to put together. The cookies smelled delicious and my picky kids actually liked them. They tasted fine on their own without the added maple frosting. But for an extremely sweet treat the frosting does the job.

    Very Nice

    ANNE JERNIGAN from HORSEHEADS, NY

    I made this cookie as part of a cookie tray I made for my niece's wedding shower. I received many compliments and requests for this recipe. I did frost the cookies and put a pecan half on top. I will definitely make again.

    This Recipe is a Keeper!

    Gwen Malinowski from CHICAGO, IL

    Don't just save this one for the holidays. The maple flavor in the cookie is great alone, so I created a cookie plate with half frosted and half un-frosted. If you don't frost the cookie, place a pecan half on top of the cookie before baking.

    Great cookies!

    KARA COOK from Elk Ridge, UT

    I have made these cookies several times and they are always wonderful. I usually use all butter or margarine in place of the shortening. I have never made them with the frosting, I think it would be to sweet. They are perfect without it!

    Delicious!

    G. C. from San Jose, CA

    I have been making these for years and they always get rave reviews. I've actually never made them with the icing, so if you're short on time you can skip the icing and still have delicious cookies.

    MAPLE YUM

    Lisa Lefebvre from MERRIMACK, NH

    I've been baking these cookies for a few years now and they are a hit, especially with my French-Canadian friends and family!! So easy and beautiful on the plate. Must double the batch!! as they never last very long! Use a baking stone to get the best results possible!

    Frosted Maple Pecan White Chocolate Chip Cookies

    Linda Eager from HARLAN, IN

    These cookies mix up quickly and bake to a nice golden brown. They are wonderful without the frosting, but maple frosting adds a really nice touch. The maple flavor and the white chocolate chips are a winning combination. They are my son's absolute favorite cookie!

    Delicious!

    Cheryl Mathieu from GRAYSLAKE, IL

    These cookies were easy to make and absolutely delicious! I think my husband ate half the batch all by himself. The cookies were really yummy without frosting (especially with a cup of coffee) but the frosting put them over the top!
