OK, so I'm testing out unique cookie recipes in preparation for the holidays, so first I halved this recipe. Then, I made a few changes as suggested by reviewers: a bit more flour, a bit more maple syrup, a bit less butter and a good bit of brown sugar to taste as I prepped the dough. I made the balls the size of large filberts rather than walnuts and this gave me a good dozen even with just a half recipe. Then, I put a sliced almond in the middle of each. I, too love maple flavor and I did use real maple syrup in these. Shortbread, on the other hand...meh. They took 7 and a half minutes to cook at this size. Hmmm, even with the additional brown sugar and maple syrup, not as mapley as I'd like. They are softer than shortbread, so that is nice. I'd make them again if I could find little mini maple chips to mix in. I think that would be a nice touch and add to the subtle maple buttery taste. This is a fun basic recipe to play around with-- thanks!
