"These came out ok. Nice texture and a mild maple flavor. We just decorated with colored sugar and maple sugar. They were a little plain. If I made them again I think I would add frosting that also had some maple flavor to it. They were easy to make but a little soft to roll out. You might need additional flour."

"These cookie were amazing! i had rave reviews and they have since been added to my treasure book of recipes. I whipped up some vanilla buttercream icing and added a little maple syrup and cinnamon to the icing for some added flare. The cookies paired with the icing made a delicious treat!"
