    If you have enough maple syrup to make a cup, leave out the apple sauce .. If not? Then add it.. ( the apple sauce that you may find you need it..start with a 1/4 cup of cider, if you find you need it, then of course add want a soft dough, but not overly wet, and of course, you don't want it dry.. This last time I made these, I actually refrigerated the dough overnight..( I don't usually do this), very hard to get out of bowl the next But definitely worth the effort..I actually think it was beneficial..but you don't need to do this..:) Good luck( a walk in the park, should be easy), and enjoy..:)
