Ultimate Maple Snickerdoodles

Preparation time:

 

Ingredients:

Cookies:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoons baking powder

teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoons ground cinnamon

cup butter, softened

1 cup white sugar

3 tablespoons real maple syrup

1 egg

cup white sugar

cup maple sugar (or may use all maple sugar - or light brown sugar if maple sugar is not available)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 1 cup of white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and maple syrup. Gradually blend in dry ingredients until just mixed. In a small dish, mix together the remaining white sugar and the maple (or brown) sugar. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and roll the balls in the sugar mixture. Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes; cookies will be crackly on top and look wet in the middle. Remove from oven and cool on wire racks.

Notes:

These are great little snickerdoodles chewy with pretty crackling on the outside. Just as good with brown sugar instead of maple.
