How to I Make These Chewy Maple Snickerdoodles?
This recipe is written to make sure the maple snickerdoodles are chewy. In addition to these ingredients, the other way to make sure these are perfectly chewy is to make sure not to overbake them. Overbaking cookies is the fastest way to take a soft or chewy cookie and turn it into a crispy cookie.
Can I Use Maple Flavoring and Karo Syrup Instead?
If you do not have maple syrup on hand or just don’t want to use it, you can swap it for maple flavoring and Karo syrup instead. You would use the same amount of Karo Syrup as you do the maple syrup and then add a teaspoon or 2 of the maple flavoring.

How to Make Snickerdoodles
To begin, you will cream together the butter, sugar, and brown sugar until they are light and fluffy. I use a stand mixer for best results.
Next, add in the maple syrup, vanilla, and egg then beat to combine.
When you are ready to make the cookies, you will preheat the oven and prepare your baking/cookie sheets with parchment paper liners.In a small bowl, you will combine the sugar and cinnamon to coat the cookies. Set this aside until later.
