“This is a recipe I found in Sunset magazine a few years ago, and finally had a chance to make them. They're very simple cookies, but tasty and go well with coffee or tea.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350°F In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Beat in eggs, cream, maple syrup, and vanilla.
  2. 2. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In three batches, beat flour mixture into butter mixture. Stir in nuts with a wooden spoon.
  3. 3. Roll the touch into 1-in balls. Then roll out into fingers roughly the size of your pinkie, and lay out on ungreased baking sheets in the shape of a crescent. If the dough starts to get sticky, chill it for a few minutes to make it easier to work with.
  4. 4. Bake cookies until they're medium brown underneath and on edges, approximately 20-25 minutes, switching pan positions halfway through baking. Cool on racks.
