Maple Snickerdoodles

Maple Snickerdoodles


Out of the sample Brien maple products the one that I was looking forward to the most was the maple sugar. I had never used maple sugar but I had been wanting to for a while. I had also found the the perfect recipe to try the maple sugar out with on all recipes; maple snickerdoodles. These maple snickerdoodles are pretty much just snickerdoodles that use maple syrup in the cookie dough for flavour and they are rolled in a maple sugar coating. Like most cookies the maple snickerdoodles were really easy to make, taking almost no time at all and they turned out great! They were nice and crispy on the edges and soft on the inside but they were full of amazing maple flavour all the way through. What a great way to satisfy a maple craving! Luckily I still have some more maple sugar to enjoy and experiment with.

Oh I'd love so much to try maple syrup and maple products in Canada, I've heard so much about it, I think the one I get in the shop will be no match...
These biscuits look great :))

Snickerdoodles are hands down in my top three favorite cookies of all time. I'm not sure what the other two are, but I hesitate to give away such valuable spots.

SOUNDS so good. I need to get some maple sugar. YUMMY!

Andrea said...

Maple snickerdoodles?! I LOVE that idea. I was never a fan of maple syrup until the first time I had the real stuff when I moved to New York. I bet it would be luscious in these cookies!

Jess said...

Hmmm, you know, I've never been a fan of snickerdoodles. But with the addition of maple, they might just hit the spot. Thanks for the recipe!

Heather said...

tamilyn said...

Sounds like a great addition to an already great cookie!

Cheryl said...

That sounds delish! Where can we get the maple sugar?

Melynda said...

Maple is the best flavor. My Dad use to buy us the maple leaf candies from Hickory Farms each year at Christmas. Some flavors always bring back a smile. Your cookies look delicious.

adventureswiththewoods said...

I'm going to have to make these! I love snickerdoodles, but I've never seen them made with maple syrup, though. Yum!

Sara said...

I have always wanted to try maple sugar, when I get my hands on some I'm going to make these!

I''ve had some maple sugar in my pantry for a while. looks like a good use for it!

Lindsay said...

I was totally thinking of doing something similar last week — maybe making maple buttercream snickerdoodles, — but I decided to save that experiment for a later date and just make traditional snickerdoodles.

Pam said...

What a fantastic cookie - I love maple and cinnamon together.

Rosa's Yummy Yums said...

Very pretty! Cinnamon and marple are two of my favorite ingredients!

Cheers,

I've always wanted to make those cookies but could never get ahold of maple sugar. They look delicious! Your gingerbread pancakes and eggplant panini look yummy too- I just bought an eggplant and don't have a plan for it!

Culinarywannabe said...

We went to a wedding in Ottawa not long ago, and they gave out little bottles of maple syrup as parting gifts. I'll find some of this maple sugar and use mine up making these yummy looking cookies!

I just love the idea of cooking with maple sugar! What a great idea!

Manggy said...

You could just put "maple" in front of everything you make and I'd be on it like white on rice :)

Nirvana said...

yummmm! :)

Ingrid said...

I want to eat at your house. Can you adopt me? And guess what you get a bonus, me and three others, my children, they don't eat much and they aren't picky at all. Please? I'm a great cleaner, just think no dishes, no more!?

What is maple sugar?

Marjie said...

My dearly beloved just adores maple sugar! These cookies look wonderful.

Katrina said...

Awesome! Sounds yummy!

Lisa@The Cutting Edge of Ordinary said...

I am a maple fanatic! One of my favorite ways to use it is in a glaze. I made a rustic apple pan tart and used a maple glaze

OH MY GOD. The glaze was to die for. Almost better than the tart itself! Thanks for sharing a maple recipe!

bobby said...

these cookies sound delicious with maple!

Pam said...

Snikerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies, I bet their great with the maple syrup!

Mrs. L said...

Yum, I have some maple syrup that needs to be used it. What a perfect use!

Culinary Cory said...

Snickerdoodle cookies are a staple in my house. I never thought about the idea of using maple syrup in them. Are they chewy? I've found there's a fine line with the baking time with this type of cookie. One extra minute and they get hard. Is that the case with you?

Helene said...

Every year I love this time of the year because I can eat maple sugar. It's so good. I never made a recipe with it. Thanks for sharing this one.

Hannah said...

These sound positively dreamy, I love maple-anything! I wish I could get my hands on some maple sugar though.

ann said...

I assume the recipe calls for 1/4 cup maple syrup? (quantity is missing) Use the rest of your sugar in making maple sugar pie. it's fantastic

Brilynn said...

I like the name snickerdoodle but have always been somewhat ambivalent about the actual cookie, I think I'd like it a million times better with maple!

giz said...

Nice looking cookies Kevin - now tell me - that maple syrup bottle - was that the 50 ml size or the 100 ml size?

Deborah said...

Great recipe!

Kevin said...

ann: Yes, it is 1/4 cup. I have updated the recipe. Thanks for noticing.

giz: The bottle in the photo is the 50mL one.

Kevin said...

Culinary Cory: Yep, baking cookies is a challenge. You have to pull them out at just the right time even if they do not seem as if they are quite done yet as they can continue to bake a bit with the residual heat. It is a skill that I need more practice at.

The first tray came out nice and soft and chewy so I left the second tray in a bit longer and they came out just crispy on the edges but they were still nice and soft and chewy on the inside.

Kevin said...

Cheryl: I have only seen maple sugar in small specialty shops and at maple farms/stores. You should be able to order some from an online maple store if you cannot find any locally.

Karen said...

I think everyone must like Snickerdoodles :)

Maggie said...

My son would go crazy for these! He loves snickerdoodles and maple syrup. I've bought maple sugar a few times but end up using it on oatmeal instead of trying to bake with it.

megan (brooklyn farmhouse) said...

Love snickerdoodles. Love maple. Love this cookie. Thanks!

kamailesfood said...

These sound fantastic! I would never have thought to make maple flavored snickerdoodles.

jenisnape said...

These are delicious! :) Thanks for the recipe!

MySugarCoatedLife said...

Mmmm, sounds like just what I need on this cold winter day! I think I'll make them tonight :)

ginny said...

Came across maple sugar at the local grocery this weekend and I couldn't have found a more DELICIOUS recipe. This is going in the ol' "go-to" cookbook. Thanks for sharing.

Emergent Teacher said...

Question: do you cream ALL of the butter and sugar together or do you reserve some for rolling the cookies in?

Emergent Teacher said...

Question: do you cream ALL of the sugar with the butter or is that amount including some reserved to roll the cookies in? How much of each sugar do you cream with the butter? I'm so not a baker so I need help with this part!

Kevin said...

Emergent Teacher: Cream 1/2 cup butter with 1 cup white sugar. The remaining 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup maple sugar are used to roll the cookie dough balls in. Enjoy!
