These have a nice, light maple flavor. Personally, I would have liked the maple flavor to be stronger, but they're still good. They're not too sweet, and baking them reminded me of shortbread. They also filled the house with a wonderful aroma.
I found the 10-12 minute baking time a bit too long. The baked the first batch for 11 minutes; they ended up burnt on the bottom. I found 9 minutes was perfect for the cookie to become lightly browned and crisp.
