Honey and maple syrup make these chocolate chip cookies a little different. The maple flavor is light and subtle. —Barbara Kuder, Tribune, Kansas

"unless I had a free supply of honey and maple syrup I would not make them again. Regular choc chip cookies taste just as good."

"One of my family members liked these, but the rest of us not so much. Bland and too much work."

"I used Agave nectar instead of maple syrup, which proved to be pretty tasty. The Pecans were kind of overpowering though. If I make them again I will use less Pecans and more chocolate chips."

"I made this for our annual family beach trip along with two other cookies and these went pretty quick. My family loved them as did my husband. His co-workers also enjoyed them. I used sugar-free maple syrup as well as sugar-free honey. I'll definitely be making them again. They are now one of my favorite cookies."
