My aunt made these one year for Christmas, and my husband ate about a dozen. Since he liked them so much, I asked for the recipe and have made them often.

"These cookies are very soft, but they didn't puff up like in the picture. They were very flat and they had a very weak maple taste. They did taste good, just kinda plain and not what I was expecting since they were called Chocolate Maple Cookie. If I decide to make them again, maybe I'll double up on the maple flavoring and make a few other adjustments to see what happens."

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

"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."
