Great recipe, but feel free to modify. I wanted these type of cookies to serve with a fruit compote. I wasn't dipping them in chocolate or filling them with a sweetened cream, so they had to taste good on their own. I found the recipe as written to taste kind of flat...just a sweet taste...a corn syrupy sweet taste, which no one in my family liked. So after the first practice tray of 2-3, I added a little salt. They need salt. While it did improve them, something was still a lacking so I added a combination of maple syrup and maple sugar and just kept tasting the batter until it was to my liking. (btw, maple sugar is not flavored white sugar, but maple sap cooked down past the point of syrup all the way to dry sugar. I live in a maple producing area, but it is in many stores now.) I think if you used all syrup, you would probably need more flour...I suppose that is worth a try, too if you don't have maple sugar.
The cookies turned out AMAZINGLY!! I didn't measure my additions (I always seem to do that, duh), but am planning on making them again soon, so maybe I will pay more attention this time and post my first ever Allrecipes page!
