MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 15, 2013

These were delicious. I brought them to a community event this afternoon and got many positive comments. I prepared them just as the recipe instructed - very easy. Nice that it didn't take a long time to bake. Frosting was delicious too. Living in New York's maple country, we like to find unique ways to use real maple syrup too.
