Not your Every Day Oatmeal Cookies
From the kitchen of Maple Trout Lilli
Just the ticket for a cold, rainy day in April:
A jazzed-up maple cookie with a delectable maple glaze that is a rich compliment to this sweet spicy cookie. I kept the batter in the fridge and made a batch of 12 every day or so. This makes a lot of cookies. They were fresh, hot and delicious. – give them a try.
