Ugh.I'm sorry Vermont, but I really don't like maple flavored anything.
Don't get me wrong, I love maple syrup on pancakes, but that's where my maple love stops.
I just couldn't bring myself to do a maple cookie. I wrote a few recipes using maple, but I just wasn't feeling it.
So I consulted my good friends, Ben & Jerry.
I immediately went to the Vermont based creamery's website to find a flavor that would translate well into a cookie. One of my favorites is Everything But The....
This ice cream really has everything. Chocolate and vanilla ice cream with toffee bits, white chocolate and chocolate covered almonds. I've drowned many a sorrow in a pint (or two).
This cookie starts with a simple chocolate base and then then has white chocolate, semisweet chocolate, chopped almonds and toffee bits mixed in. It really is a super delicious, chunky, chocolatey cookie. If they had lasted, I think they would be even more fabulous with some vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two.
Allow to cool for a few minutes onto the baking sheets and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
