Maple Walnut Crisps Recipe

If you like maple, you’ll love these dainty, sweet-and-salty crackers full of buttery, nutty flavor. If not, Mary suggests substituting corn syrup for maple syrup and vanilla extract for the maple flavoring. Either way, these snacks make a yummy, low-cost gift for neighbors and relatives!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 10, 2011

I made a mistake and forgot to put in the maple syrup and flavoring. Afterward,I put the 2 lq. together with a little water and used a cake decorating syringe and it was easier than when I did it correctly. the mistake way clumped nicely and didn't spead all over the pan.

I've made these several times and they always are a hit. Just be sure to boil the sugar and butter mixture long enough.

This is one of my son's favorite Christmas treat. I use only 1/2 cup butter and between 1/2 - 3/4 cup b. sugar to keep them a little healthier and they are still great!!!!

Easy pecan pie tasting bars. I used whole grain club crackers. It adds a little something.

MY REVIEW

I took ZTRAK's comments to heart when I made this recipe. If you search for "Homemade Candy Bars" on this site you will get hints on how to alter the recipe to suit your tastes. I used 4 T. maple syrup instead of 2T. I added 1/4 c. evaporated milk and 2 c. vanilla wafer crumbs. I also added a second layer of 42 crackers. I followed the directions in "Homemade Candy Bars" more closely than the directions in this recipe. The result was quite good. This recipe was a good starting point for my finished product.
