Lime, Ginger, and Coconut Sugar Cookies

Author Notes: I cook a lot of Indian and Southeast Asian influenced recipes with curries making regular appearances in my kitchen. Because of this there is a constant supply of limes, ginger, and coconut (oil/milk/flakes) in the house and that is how these cookies came to be. testkitchenette

Is the maple syrup considered part of the sugar when mixing? I see it in the ingredients, but not the directions.
