French Toast Spirals
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min./batch + cooling
I really enjoyed these cookies (and I’m picky about sweets). There’s a lot of time involved, but not hard at all. They are not too sweet. They did remind me of French toast. Small hint of maple syrup. I loved how the bottom of the cookie got a little bit caramelized. I know my oven runs hot, so I only cooked them for 11 minutes and they were perfect.
It was a lot of work before you can bake the cookies, but it is worth it. I think there is a lot of flavor. I used Mrs. Butterworths Syrup in it and could taste the maple. I would suggest a buttercream or cream cheese frosting after they are baked. It really enhances the taste.
A decent cookie but reminded me nothing of French toast. The cookie didn't have any notable or distinct flavor. I used a high quality pure maple syrup that my family loves on pancakes and waffles, but in the cookie it was almost undetectable as maple. I will be adding some maple extract along with the syrup when I make these again. I think the extra boost of the extract will help these cookies actually taste like what their name implies.
