Frosted Maple Cookies

A few weeks ago Gooseberry Patch on Facebook posted a note with the recipe for these cookies. They sounded yummy. I made them tonight. I thought the cookies were good but the frosting - OMG!!!! YUMMY!!!! I want to save this frosting recipe and slather it all over a pan of cinnamon rolls. If you like Maple Bars (donuts) then you will LOVE these cookies. :-)
