Maple Snickerdoodles

November 7, 2011

Another cookie recipe. I can’t stay away. I’m obsessed with sweets. Somebody help me!


I saw this recipe featured on Tastespotting.com. I love this website. Everyday this site is updated with new recipes from various blogs. And they feature every kind of food from cookies, to pizza, to soups, to chicken. Love it!


This recipe is like your typical snickerdoodle cookie except better. You use real maple syrup, which gives the cookie this awesome taste. If you like snickerdoodles (and even if you don’t!), you’ll have to give this recipe a try. In the original recipe, she uses maple sugar to roll her dough in but I couldn’t find maple sugar (and I hear it’s crazy expensive), so I just did the alternative: 1/4 cup white sugar mixed with 1 tsp cinnamon. Yum!


Maple Snickerdoodles

recipe from Cooking with 1he Big Dogs


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 & 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 & 1/2 tsps cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3 T real maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup white sugar mixed with 1 tsp cinnamon or if you have it 1/8 cup of maple sugar along with the white sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silmat mat.
  2. Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar.
  4. Beat in the egg and maple syrup.
  5. Gradually add in dry ingredients until well-blended.
  6. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, and then roll balls into sugar mixture. Place cookies 2 inches apart on baking sheet.
  7. Bake 8-10 minutes, or until cookies are crackly on top, and look slightly wet in middle.
  8. Let cool for a minute or two, and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Enjoy!

After I was done baking these, I let each of the kids have one cookie. About 10 minutes later, I noticed somebody took a bite out of a second one. Silly, Joker.
