My grandmother sent me this cookie recipe a long time ago..
I think I made it once and was in such a hurry in those days..that I never made it again.
I am putting this cookie on my to do list.
After making these cookies, and sampling for two days, I think I stumbled onto something.
While using maple syrup, I tasted the maple syrup and took a bit of cookie...wonderful. ( did the same thing with ginger and it was not good).So I added maple syrup to this recipe.
