Maple Walnut Cookies elicit feelings of love and gratitude. The chemistry between maple syrup, butter and walnuts create euphoria. Brace yourself. There is a real advantage to keeping these little miracles tiny. Firstly, they are fragile, thus taking 2-3 bites of a larger cookie will cause the cookie to crumble into your lap (not a great experience). Second, they are rich enough that one bite will hit the spot. If someone takes a second or third cookie, it’s a compliment. If they continue past that without breathing, it’s an addiction.
One more note before we begin, I have given this recipe to you almost verbatim from Rose Levy Beranbaum’s Rose’s Christmas Cookies. Even though I’ve rearranged the instructions and added a few notes and reminders, there is nothing to improve on or change, as Rose has the details very well covered.
