Reviews for Peanut Butter Maple Cookies
"Excellent!!! One of the best cookies I've had."
"The PERFECT cookie texture. Next time I think I will cut out the maple syrup.... I don't taste it. This is a GREAT peanut butter cookie though. I may try with chocolate chips or chocolate chip peanut butter swirl chips next time for something different. This is the PERFECT base for any peanut butter cookie you want. They are so perfect. Crispy on the outside chewy in the middle. They are LOVELY! Thank you SO much! I am keeping this recipe :)"
"My sister and I made these for 1st time for our annual cookie day and they came out terrific, soft and as I am not a pb fan, loved the slight taste of maple (we used the real maple syrup) and crunchy pb Gave them to some friends and they wanted the recipe Not a single one was left !"
