  1. These just got added to my Christmas cookie list. My son is a rabid snickerdoodle lover and a fan of maple syrup.

  2. I made these ones after I made the chocolate cherry...I used real maple syrup (is there anything else?) and I have to say, I couldn't hardly taste the maple syrup it at all. I think I underbaked my first batch by a minute. But these don't have the bite that snickerdoodles have (the cream of tarter bite), These look really pretty. I will take them to the XMas party and see how others like them.

  3. Uummm,
    I gotta say that I agree with you.
    I like the simplicity of these cookies. I think they are pretty and yummy, but I, like you wish they tasted more "maple" than they did.
    I figure out how to do it without messing with the consistency of the dough by adding more syrup.

    Roll them in Maple sugar!
    You know... maple syrup, boiled down to a sugar form! yummm!

    The only problem is we don't have it in Texas!!! When we lived up north you could buy maple sugar and maple sugar candies all the time....

    I sure hope someone tries it and lets us know.
    I am gonna try a maple glaze.

    so, I'm with you.
    Good cookie.. but not as maple as I'd like.

    ;)

  4. Oh, Maple Sugar Candy! YUM, I bought some on ebay a few years back from someone in Canada and he added a few free maple lollipops...THEY WERE AWESOME! -I spent my summers in Canada, love maple leaf cookies too.
    Look on ebay or the internet...It aint cheap though!
    I have seen a snickerdoodle recipe that calls for the maple sugar for them to be rolled in. I think I saw it on the internet too.
