Meet the Cook: These cookies take some time, effort and equipment - but, believe me, they are well worth it! My husband and I (we have two grown children) used to operate an Italian-American restaurant, and this recipe goes back generations.—Gloria Cracchiolo, Newburgh, New York
The kitchen smells so good when Mom is baking these yummy cookies, which we like to make with sorghum. They're chewy and tender, with a sugary coating. It's hard to eat just one!
Since my husband farms, I try to have simple meals and snacks available, as I never know when he and his father will come in from the fields. These cookies have a distinct maple flavor and stay moist and soft, although they're never in my cookie jar for long!
Covered in chopped nuts and drizzled with chocolate, these cookies are delicious and pretty, too. Everybody looks forward to munching on them during the holidays.

Chocolate lovers will get a double dose with this tender cake-like cookie and its chocolate mint middle. The cookies are especially popular served alongside a big scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream! —Renee Schwebach, Dumont, Minnesota
