This is the most extensive list I've seen of variations! I usually bake from 12 to 18 different cookie recipes for Christmas--this might make my life a lot easier! I've been searching for a good maple-flavored cookie, your version looks really good. I'll have to try it this year. Thanks a lot!

These recipes look great. I am probably looking right at it, but I don't see the sugar cookie recipe that goes with the "quickie snow white glaze for sugar cookies" at the bottom of the list of variations.
