I just baked these and they are delicious! I love maple syrup and it gave the shortbread that extra flavour. I also thought the dough was a bit more like a batter so I just added more flour so it was a bit more manageable to shape into balls. As the other reviews had said it wasn't sweet enough, I added a little sugar to the butter whilst creaming, about a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and a tad more maple syrup than the recipe called for. I also sprinkled some demerara sugar over them before they went in the oven. I knew they would be good as the smell from the oven was fantastic. Will definitely make these again! Thanks :)
I didn't have real maple syrup but used pancake syrup. Cookies weren't very sweet so I put a brown sugar icing on them. They were better with the icing. I may try making these with karo syrup and using other flavorings like lemon or coconut, all with icicng.
These cookies are great. I added about 1/2 cup of brown sugar because the previous reviews said they added sugar, I suggest to add sugar it makes it sweet but not too overbearing. I also used fresh maple syrup from an organic market, not the bottled kind, if you can get your hands on some fresh maple syrup it makes the cookies that much better!! I also used just a little less butter, everyone loves them!
These are easy and fast to make. I sprinkled some turbinado sugar on the tops before baking. They taste very good!
Really light, sweet and mapley! After reading the reviews, I added the following to the recipe as well as rolling the balls in organic cane sugar before baking:
-add'l 1/4c maple syrup
-1/4c organic brown sugar
Very simple and delicious recipe, thank you!
i love them! rolled them in balls and place a walnut on the top of each only flattened them a little so they stayed puffy :o)
So good and so simple! I wanted cookies but my ingredients were limited because we're moving. I happened to have real maple syrup and oat and rice flours. I even had to cream the syrup and butter by hand because I already packed my mixer but the cookies turned out! Because other reviewers said they weren't sweet enough, I put some white sugar on the first batch. The second batch I didn't and both were pleasantly sweet. I will definitely make these again :)
Tasty, light and definitely shortbread. The only problem was that they didn't taste as maple syrupy as I had hoped, even with an extra 1/4 cup of maple syrup.
