So, I began to work on a sandwich cookie. My first thought was to use a basic sugar cookie dough and cut the cookies out in the shape of maple leaves. But, I thought the sugar cookie might overwhelm the maple filling and also be too crunchy. So, I decided to adapt my Shrewsbury Cakes recipe for a softer cookie and flavor it with some maple to compliment the filling.
These turned out exceptionally well, and I could almost sit and eat the filling by itself! You can make these as big or small as you like. I used a large scoop for the cookies so my finished cookies were about 3-4 inches across.
