Great maple flavor-do not use real butter in these or they will be flat instead of puffy.

Servings: 3 dozen      Cook Time: 8 - 13 min  


1 1/4 firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter flavored Crisco
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp maple extract
1 egg
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place brown sugar, shortening, maple syrup, vanilla and maple extract in large bowl. Beat at med. speed until well-blended. Add egg. Beat well.
