Posts Tagged ‘caramel’

I wanted to try something different, and I saw this recipe and thought it sounded interesting.  How can you go wrong with apples and caramel?

On a side note, if you are unwrapping the caramels or cutting them into smaller pieces before hand, coat them in powdered sugar or cornstarch or something.  Otherwise you will relive my experience yelling and cursing at a bowl of caramels that had glued themselves to each other and the bowl.  It also resulted in some caramels flying across the room as little sweet projectiles as I tried to lever them out of the bowl with a butter knife.  So, take my advice and either unwrap as you are forming the cookies or coat each piece to keep them from sticking.

The original recipe comes from http://www.sixsistersstuff.com.

Apple Cider Caramel Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 8 individual packets of Spiced Apple Cider Drink Mix
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 14-oz bag caramels (the soft, chewy kind, not the hard candies)

Instructions:

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix together dry ingredients.
  3. In another bowl, beat together butter and sugar until fluffy.  Add vanilla and eggs one at a time.
  4. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture.
  5. Form dough into walnut sized balls and place a piece of caramel inside (I cut my caramels in half).
  6. Bake 12 – 14 minutes.  Use parchment paper lined baking sheets to help the cookies come off cleanly.
