  9. Roll the cookie dough balls in the sugar/cinnamon mixture and place them 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet.

Recipe Notes

Store these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
Make sure you use real maple syrup and not maple flavoured pancake syrup. Pure maple syrup will give you the best flavour. If you want a very robust maple flavour look for a dark coloured maple syrup.
