Maple Sugar Snickerdoodles

Posted May 13 2008 12:30pm
Where have I been?! I know, I've been absent... I've simply been swamped with several things, including a recital for our daughter and my mom visiting. Juggling, juggling...

These are a new recipe, and a new favorite for our family. Maple Sugar Snickerdoodles. They are cinnamony-sugar sweet and crispy on the outside, and just tender and soft enough on the inside. The maple flavor is delicate and not overpowering - it's just the sugar on the outside hinting at maple flavor, there's no maple syrup in the batter itself.

Here they are fresh out of the oven on the baking sheet (lined with parchment). Don't you love the patterns that naturally develop through baking? So pretty! (btw, did you know that Snickerdoodles are not well known in Canada? I had never heard of them until about six or so years ago!)

We had a few batches of Snickerdoodles cycling through the house a few weeks ago. Since then, I've also made some treats from my books to munch on while mom's visiting... including Supercharge Me! Cookies from ed&bv. I've posted about these before, and these are really one healthy cookie in a delicious disguise! Truly, you won't believe they are sweetened only with maple syrup, include almond butter, and also 1/3 cup of flax meal! Yes, they do... BUT you won't believe it! This time, you can see I made them smaller for more bite-sized treats, so I baked them for less time - about 12 mins. I also didn't form them, simply dropped on the parchment. They taste the same, but I prefer them a little larger as per the recipe (and the previous post). These are so easy, tasty, and healthy...
