The theme this week for the Creative Cookie Exchange is sandwich cookies – and I made these tasty Maple Cream Cookies.

Maple Cream Cookies - a delicious cookie with creamy maple filling sandwiched between two spice cookies.

The cookie part of this recipe is a mild spice cookie flavored with real maple syrup.  Maple is one of my favorite flavors, and although it is a traditional fall flavor I like it all year round.  Baking these cookies made the whole house smell delicious too.
