“There’s always maple syrup in my pantry, and when I’m craving for some buttery shortbread cookies I like to add a touch of maple syrup with some crunchy pecans. This trio makes the perfectly guilty pleasure. If you want to share your recipe on Kitchen Stories, send it to community@kitchenstories.io”
