Chewy Spice Cookies

"Do you remember these?” I asked the farmer as I pulled a brown paper bag of gingersnaps off the grocer’s holiday clearance shelf. “They are way better stale- after the snap turns to chew!”

 This recipe is inspired by stale gingersnaps.

1 cup sugar plus additional for rolling
1/4 cup cane syrup
