Alright people, Fall is in the air. Finally!!
I can see a subtle shift in the light and days are not SO oppressively humid. Baby-steps toward a change in season!
These cookies had a light, chewy texture and the perfect amount of maple syrup flavor to make them totally addictive with the sugar coating!
I made the full recipe, but I gave some to the Misses for lunches and sent the rest to school for Miss F’s teachers, who expressed their gratitude and thanks!
A great fall-flavored treat! Enjoy!
