These cookies are inspired by something my mom shared at Thanksgiving this year. I had one and was hooked. I may have had three or four. In the closet. Cause I was stuffin my face ya’ll.
So I rushed home and tried to recreate it as best I knew how.
It is a jazzed up oatmeal cookie with a delectable maple glaze.
I have to tell you, if you are a fan of oatmeal raisin cookies, you may not want to try these.
The addition of that maple glaze has RUINED me forever. Its just so rich, so complimentary to that subtle sweet spicy cookie, its like a match made in cookie heaven.
I will never be able to eat a plain oatmeal cookie again.
And when I say never I mean I totally will I am just being overly dramatic.
I adapted the cookie recipe from the amazing Deb from smitten kitchen.
Seriously. I bet you have everything to make these in your pantry.
If you are opposed to the banana in there, by all means just leave it out. I try to add banana to everything. Maybe not spaghetti. But most other stuff cause I like it so much.
And although I HIGHLY recommend using PURE (organic even) Maple Syrup, if you dont have any and want to make these, you can substitute the other stuff.
