These came out really good! I added the powdered sugar a half cup at a time, and ended up using 3 1/2 cups - and even then I was finding the dough hard to stick together. So, I beat in 2 more tbsp of softened butter and it was much better to work with. Only other change was to use maple syrup (Grade B) instead of the extract. I think these would be great with just double vanilla and no maple, but I thought the maple did add a certain depth of flavor without making it at all "maple-y". I do like these, but I have to admit I prefer the peanut butter bar filling with the graham cracker crumbs in it. Still, these are tasty and will make a nice addition to my Christmas cookie platters!
