Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Cream the butter with the brown sugar and 3/4 cup of the white sugar. Mix in the vanilla and maple extract and beat for 1 minute. Beat in the egg until just blended. Add the pecans, mixing at low speed until the pecans are evenly distributed throughout the batter. Add the flour and mix at medium speed until the flour is thoroughly incorporated.
  3. Shape the dough into 1 1/2 inch to 2 inch balls. Roll the balls in the extra white sugar. Place the balls on ungreased cookie sheets leaving about 2 inches between balls. Flatten ball to about 1/4 inch thick with your hand or a cookie stamp. Bake cookies for 7 to 9 minutes or until the edges are slightly browned. Let cookies cool on baking sheet for 1 to 2 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to finish cooling.

I agree that these are misnamed as 'crisps', mine came out about the same concistincy of snickerdoodles, chewy. But they, in my opinion, are scrumpylicious.

This recipe is brilliant, I use it as the basis for all the cookies I make just by changing what I add at the end, and they always come out perfectly crispy round the edge and a bit squidgy in the middle.

These didn't turn out crispy for me for some reason. I followed the directions exactly but the cookies came out chewy and a bit floury. It did have good maple flavour, though.

It was good. My daughter liked them because she likes anything with maple. Thought I'd tried this out since I had all the ingredients on hand. These were like a cross between sugar cookies and pecan sandies.
