    Really tasty shortbread with a subtle hint of maple syrup.  -  03 Jan 2016


    Very quick, easy and best of all delicious  -  08 Aug 2013


    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.  -  07 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
