    Definitely trying this! Do you think adding anisette extract and/or seeds would work with these?

    • Great idea, Stephanie! Yes, I think that would work.

    Can I use regular flour instead?

    Hmm, I just made these and had to throw them out…they were super dry. I’m so confused because I followed the recipe too. Was it supposed to be maple SYRUP instead of sugar? I’m so bummed!!

    • @LaurenA – did you use the full amount of butter?
