Tender, crisp and oh so buttery maple, these cookies are an adaptation of a recipe I found years ago. It was too crumbly and dry so I revamped it to come up with these. They are a family favorite. I hope you enjoy!
MAPLE MELT-AWAY CRISPS
1 c. butter
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 t. maple flavoring
1/2 t. salt
2 c. flour
1/2 c. ground walnuts or pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add flavoring and the dry ingredients, mixing well. Chill for about 1 hour. Form into 1" balls and roll in white sugar. Flatten on un-greased cookie sheet with the back of a glass. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Yield about 5 dozen.
