Reviews for Chewy Maple Cookies
Sort By :
"Absolutely fabulous without any changes"
"I tweaked it a little - I used butter and added another 1/4 cup flour. It still looked too wet so I added a good handful of oats and a handful of chopped walnuts. These spread out quite a bit - it was a flat, but chewy, delicious cookie. I may play around with it a little more next time (maybe 2 cups flour?) and put some pecans in (I love cookies with nuts). Overall, a keeper recipe and good flavor! Oh, and use real maple syrup!"
"A fall favorite. The cookie is delicious with coconut and I wouldn't dream of changing the recipe."
"Delicious cookies. However, I'm very much against using shortening so I used non-hydrogenated margarine or butter and increased the flour to 1 3/4 c.Worked well. I've made these cookies a few times. We produce our own maple syrup so I like recipes that use it!"
"I made these cookies for thanksgiving and had high hopes based on the previous review (I also used Oatmeal instead of the coconut) The dough is VERY sticky and the cookies are very soft and moist but I di not care for the texture, they were kinda gummy. They were not a hit and I will not be making these again. :("
