All the flavor of a caramel apple packed inside a neat cookie package. Well, not too neat. There is that gooey, sticky center to deal with.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Cookies
Serves: 40 cookies
  • 2 sticks Butter, softened
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 box (10 packets) Spiced Apple Cider Instant Drink Mix
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon
  • 3 cups Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • Caramel candies
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Cream together butter, sugar, salt and all 10 packets of apple cider mix. Mix until batter becomes whipped or kind of “fluffy.”
  4. Beat in eggs, cinnamon and vanilla extract.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and baking powder.
  6. Add flour mixture to batter in small batches and mix together until combined.
  7. Scoop out about 2 tablespoons of dough and form into a ball. Place on parchment paper lined pan and flatten.
  8. Place caramel into the center. Seal the dough around the caramel square.
  9. Place dough balls 2-3 inches apart on baking pan.
  10. Bake 12-14 minutes or until lightly brown around the edges.
  11. Gently slide the parchment paper with cookies off the hot pan onto the counter or a silicone baking mat. Cool and allow to slightly firm up, but still remain warm. After cooling a few minutes, flip cookies over to finish cooling upside down on the parchment paper.
  12. Best served slightly warm. If serving after completely cooled, reheat in the microwave about 10 seconds.
