I thought this was ok. I was surprised at the general lack of maple flavor, I could only taste spice and I used good quality maple syrup. It was weird the dough was very maple-y and once cooked they lost their magic

I loved the subtle maple flavor of these. I did not do cutouts; I pressed them into a Halloween shapes pan. They were cute and the flavor was very good. I will make them again.

I love these cookies. I use several different sizes of maple leaf shaped cookie cutters. I've tried this recipe with pecans and walnuts. I have to say that even though pecans are usually my favorite nut, in this recipe the walnuts are great.

Being low-fat it is very crunchy...more like a thin biscotti. My grandkids liked them as I did. Rolled the second ball of dough a tad thicker and they were a little chewer, but then you end up with less cookies.

I did not care for these cookies at all - I used Grade A maple syrup as well, so terribly disappointing in use of ingredients for a cookie that we didn't care for. Like another reviewer posted, these are very crunchy cookies (more like biscotti) and I thought the dough was difficult to work with. I had to really compact / press to get the dough to stick together in order to roll and get cutouts. Made exactly as prescribed, we ended up throwing our full batch of cookies (and yes, I got the full amount of cookies - after 34 I decided to toss the remaining dough). Won't make these again - better cookie recipes out there from C.L. and we will stick with those.
