To MAIREAD2: I used the eHow food (www.ehow.com/how_6530742_make-maple-sugar.html) directions for how to make the maple sugar, reducing the volume from the 2 gallons listed down to 1 cup in a 1qt pot. After cooking to 255 degrees and then stirring it 5 min to sort of a fudge consistency, like it said to, I pressed it flat onto a silicone mat to cool. After I chopped it up with a spatula, I had a little less than a 1-qt jar. This amount seemed reasonable for the home cook, and doesn't cost too much. Hope this helps!
UPDATE: made these exactly as written and found the maple flavor too subtle (only had grade A, though), underdone at 10 minutes, and waay too sweet. Will try again, subbing some maple sugar for the white in the dough, reducing the white sugar in the dough too, cutting the cinnamon down a little, and maybe rolling only in maple sugar.
