MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 26, 2011

I didn't find these very "mapley" tasting at all. I even added more before baking and still were very bland.

MY REVIEW

My daughter says, "These cookies are awesome!" and our whole family agrees. We made them for a Christmas party and there were gone in an instant.
