Maple Snickerdoodles

Maple Snickerdoodles

(I talked about this recipe here)

2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
5 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 egg
cinnamon, sugar, and a few drops of maple syrup for rolling (approximately 2T sugar, 1T cinnamon, 1 1/2 teaspoons syrup)

Preheat oven to 350.
Stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 3/4 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and maple syrup.
Gradually blend in the dry ingredients until just mixed.
In a small dish, mix together the remaining 2 tablespoons white sugar, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, and maple syrup.
Roll dough into 1 inch balls, and roll the balls in the sugar mixture. Place cookies 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.

Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes - cookies will be crackly on top and look wet in the middle. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.
