I made these cookies to the recipe except I substituted 3 Tabelspoons maple syrup for the corn syrup and water. They turned out perfect and were so delicious! Great Recipe! :)
I've been making these cookies since 1998, when I first saw the recipe in a Land O Lakes cookbook. Everyone LOVES this cookie. The cookies are tender with a nice crunch, not too sweet, with a heavenly aroma. If I were only making one cookie at Christmas, this would be the one!
