My son-in-law calls these yin yang cookies and asks for them as such! Be careful with the two colored doughs so you get the true maple effect. You can color the dough on the plain side with a few drops of food coloring, if you wish to pair a different color. I’ve tried a few variations to this cookies but come back to the original. They are great just the way they are!
