I read lots of reviews before making these, but in the end decided to follow the recipe. As written, I would rate this a 3, but with some changes, it is a 4. I made one full batch, and they were indeed flat. That would have been okay - some flat cookie recipes are meant to be just that and taste great. These, on the otherhand, felt very greasy and tasted that way. My husband really wanted maple cookies, and I was tempted to switch recipes, but decided to try this one again with some changes. Reduced the butter to 1/2 cup and increased the flour by 1/4 cup. They didn't come out nearly as flat, had terrific flavor and were softer, a little more cake-like. I made the icing as directed and drizzled it over the cookies. My husband loves these and agrees with the submitter's husband - these remind him of a maple bar - his favorite kind on doughnut. Will probably make this again, but definitely with changes.
