This is one of the instances when TWD made me jump out of my box. I have always admired this sophisticated little cookies, but never would have tried them on my own. So thanks to Clivia at Bubbies' Little Baker for forcing me into it!
I will say that the three cookies on that plate are the only three out of the eight I baked that turned out into something photographable. They were all edible......just not all pretty! There is quite the trick in getting them from the cookie sheet onto a moldable apparatus. Your timing has to be impeccable in order to keep the cookie all in one piece. So these take some practice.
As for the taste......they have a wonderfully rich maple flavor. I think these would be best with some ice cream. Broken up and sprinkled on top maybe. Anyway, I'm glad I tried them, but I'm going to need some more practice!
Please check Clivia's site for the recipe. And step out of your box and try these.
