These can be made with maple sugar, but I find this sugar to be way too costly to put into a cookie. Instead I've used an organic Coconut Palm Sugar.
Preheat oven to 300F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the sugar into a spice grinder or blender and blend until it is a fine powder - measure sugar after grinding.
Combine all ingredients into a medium size bowl and mix thoroughly.
Drop dough by spoon onto the baking sheet and flatten with your fingers or the back of a spoon. If the dough is too sticky, refrigerate for about 20 minutes.
Bake for 20 minutes until they brown slightly.
Let cool completely before moving to a serving plate.
You could also chill the dough for 1-2 hours then pat out to 1/2 inch thick and cut into shapes either with a knife or cookie cutters. As the dough warms up it will get sticky, so you may have to chill again periodically to firm it up to continue.
