So when you are out of an ingredient, how is it that is all you crave? I ran out of maple syrup and had to run and pick some up this weekend. Which isn’t as easy as running to the grocery store because I like Canadian maple syrup, not Vermont. Hey, I’m Canadian, I’m sorry.

I’ve been making these cookies for awhile and never posted the recipe over here. This time I rolled them in a mixture of maple sugar and regular granulated sugar which is why they look a bit textured. You can do either. I was trying to get more maple flavour today so thought it was a good idea.
