    Fall is in the air, apple cookie recipes are also on the rise. For me, apples go hand in hand with caramel. Lush, crisp apples with gooey caramel is a match made in heaven. Caramel Apple Cookies are the only solution!

    There is a place for caramel apples, certainly, and I still love making them, but while absolutely delicious, the chewy, ooey, gooey crunchiness of a candied apple can be difficult to transport, messy to eat and is as filling as a whole meal.

    Please don’t take that statement as a knock against caramel apples, I LOVE them, but is there a cleaner, slightly more compact alternative? Why YES! Caramel apple cookies.

    The bitter apple taste and chewy sweet caramel all in one dainty bite. The batter will literally tingle your tongue. The aroma of apple cider is almost overwhelming.

    The result is spectacular. I promise. Perfect for Halloween or any other fall event.mMy recipe for caramel apple cookies is adapted from The Cooking Photographer.

    I searched long and hard for instant apple cider mix. Ultimately it was located near the cocoa and hot chocolate mixes and the most popular brand is Alpine Spiced Apple Cider Mix.

    Do not skimp on using the parchment paper, it is imperative that you use it to prevent the cookies from sticking to the cookie sheet. If you do find that they stuck, place the whole baking sheet in the freezer for a few minutes and they will pop right off!

    Ingredients
    Cookies
    • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 box Instant Apple Cider Drink Mix 10 packets, such as Alpine
    • 2 eggs room temperature
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
    • 3 1/2 cups flour
    • 12 caramels unwrapped, cut in half
    Sugar Roll
    Instructions
    1. Sift together baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and flour. Set aside.
    2. Cream butter and sugar. Blend in salt and vanilla. Slowly, one packet at a time to avoid an apple cider dust bomb, blend in Apple Cider Drink Mix packets (I'm telling you this from experience). Lastly, blend in eggs.
    3. Half and cup at a time, add in sifted flour mix. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
    4. Unwrap all of the caramels and put in a small bowl. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    5. In a small bowl combine sugar and pumpkin pie spice for the cookie roll.
    6. Spoon out a small amount of cookie dough, approximately 2 heaping teaspoons. Roll into a ball and smash flat in the palm of your hand. Place 1/2 caramel in the center and roll tightly around to prevent any holes. Roll in cookie roll sugar and place 2 inches apart on your lined cookie sheet.
    7. Bake for 11-14 minutes, cookies will look slightly undercooked. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
