  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and line the cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Place sugar and cream cheese in a large bowl. Pour warm butter over sugar and cream cheese and whisk vigorously until all combined and smooth.

  3. Add egg, maple syrup, and maple extract, whisk well for about a minute.

  4. Add flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix with rubber spatula until completely combined. Fold in pecans.

  5. In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and cinnamon and whisk well.

  6. Use a cookie scoop to get even cookies. (I use either #50 or #40 cookie scoop.) Gently roll the dough into a ball and drop it into the bowl with powdered sugar. Roll the ball in sugar and place it on the prepared baking sheet.

  7. Place cookie balls about 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet and bake for 11-13 minutes.
