These little sugary treats just scream Christmastime to me! I love all things ginger and snickerdoodle so the combination was just perfection. They weren't over the top gingery so the kids loved them too! This recipe is slightly adapted from Julie's Eats & Treats.

3/4 cup butter (softened)
1 1/2 cup sugar (divided)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup maple syrup
3 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon (divided)
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cream of tartar

Heat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl cream together the butter, 1/2 cup sugar and brown sugar until it is light and fluffy.  Mix in the egg and syrup. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, ginger, salt and cream of tartar. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined. In a small bowl combine 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.  Roll the dough into balls and coat in the cinnamon sugar mixture then place on the baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are just starting to brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 2 minutes then place on a wire rack.
