Reviews for Maple Walnut Crisps
"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."
"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."
