I LOVE THESE COOKIES! Seriously, these may be my favorite cookies ever, and I have made and tasted a lot of cookies. Mine took the full 15 minutes, but my oven is wonky. My husband said they were perfect as is and I totally agree. Thank you for this recipe :)>>>


This recipe is killer.  It is so natural and so perfectly salty and sweet....I am in love, needless to say! 


this recipe is really good. not to sweet, either. i baked one batch at 9 minutes, one at 10. i think the 10 minutes worked very well.


these cookies are fantastic. i used pecans instead of walnuts. i ground them with a nut mill and ended up adding a few splashes of milk because i was afraid it was too dry.  they don't seem like traditional cookies, in terms of texture, ... mine seemed a bit granola bar-ish... but the maple and pecan flavors are mmmm they are good.


i followed the recipe exactly except i subbed pecans for walnuts. still amazing. ALL my friends loved them so i made them again with some vegan chocolate powder. fantastic yet again.


This recipe was good.  I cut down on the walnuts and increased the flour.  I was hoping for more "maple" flavor, but I suppose the flour cut some flavor.  My first batch (I bake in a convection toaster oven) was in for 10 minutes, and the second batch turned out much better at only 8 minutes.  So, don't over bake.  These cookies don't spread while baking, so don't worry about getting them too close on the baking sheet.  I have a picture of them to the right of the recipe.  The embroidered cloth was done by my 91 year old mother-in-law.  And, yes, that is soy milk.  Milk and cookies...yummy!!


Man, I'm going to try these.  Omega-3 is supposed to help depression.  Just reading this recipe lifted my spirits!
