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.
