Maple Walnut Crisps

 Maple Walnut Crisps
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!
