Line baking sheets with a nonstick mat, parchment paper, or another nonstick material.
Blend the ground cinnamon and maple sugar together in a shallow bown or plate. Use the palm of your hands to roll a tablespoon or so of dough into a ball. Roll the dough ball in the cinnamon mixture to fully coat. Place the dough balls on the cookie sheet, spaced about an inch (2.5 cm) or so apart, and flatten with the underside of a jar or glass, or with the palm of your hand.
