Maple Leaf Cookies!

If you live near a Trader Joes, I strongly urge you to run there straight away and purchase these yummy cookies.

I LOVE maple-flavored stuff. A few years ago Starbucks made a maple latte available and I could not get enough of it. Seriously, that drink was made for me. These cookies are just regular, tasty sandwich cookies with a little maple flavoring. Just enough to make them smell slightly like a stack of pancakes and not so much that they are overly sugary. The problem with maple stuff is that too much of the sugary flavoring can ruin it. Like real maple candy or maple walnut fudge, both delicious but too much sugar. One bite and it feels like your teeth are going to fall right out! Anywho, try these cookies, they are super!

Last week Fig and I had breakfast/brunch twice at an awesome breakfast cafe on 6th ave in Tacoma.  The french toast at Shakabrah Java is perfect. Seriously. The. Best. French. Toast. EVER.
