    The 1/4 cup of nuts goes into the shortbread crust,if you read the recipe carefully. I think I would try adding the maple extract to white sugar to substitute for the maple sugar.

    Roxxann..if you can get Karo syrup and replace the maple for that and add about 1 tsp of maple extract that would be fine . If someting calls for honey, when I am baking ,and I am out of it, I use karo syrup so that might be an option for you too . Unless you have a huge amount of honey you need to use in a recipe, the taste won't be altered that much at all . Good luck!!!
