Maple-Walnut Spritz Cookies

After taking a trip to Vermont during maple harvest season, I just had to make something using maple syrup. Because I love maple, walnuts and spritz cookies, I combined all those elements to create these perfectly delicious bites. I adore the aroma when these are baking.

    I liked this recipe but, the dough was very soft and even when I chilled it before pressing or after pressing, I still could not maintain the pressed shape. They tended to spread into circles for me....still good if you don’t mind that one issue. Not a sweet cookie, even with the little sugar on top but again, I liked it.
