I have made this recipe many times and it is much loved by the kids. Great texture of crispy on the outside and soft and chewy in the middle but for me it is too sweet and the sugar kills the flavor of both the maple and cinnamon. I read all of the very helpful reviews posted here and made three batches today. Here are my changes: drop the sugar down to 3/4 cup, add a pinch of salt, up the baking soda to 1/2 tsp, weigh the flour making sure you only have only 9 oz and add it by hand, use butter and make it an extra large egg. I rolled the cookie in 5 oz of white sugar mixed with 1/2 tsp cinnamon (this could be reduced as I had a fair bit left over). Only cook for 8 minutes in a very well pre-heated oven. The cookies will not look done but will set nicely and if you turn them over they should be quite nicely browned on the bottom. They will puffed up when cooked but will sink as they cool. This recipe usually gets me around 30 - 32 cookies.
