Preparation

Step 1

…or do you really want to know that my baby girl has a mullet…in the womb.The one advantage of being high risk is that I get a detailed ultrasound every week. I asked yesterday if the baby had hair and the tech said, “Yes. In the back.”  Awesome. She’s all set for late nights with daddy watching

But you do want to know about these cookies – another find on Pinterest that I’ve had on my “to-try” list. My friend Kaela sent them to work with her husband. Her husband and my husband work together and John thought they were so good he saved one for me and brought it home for me to try. These Caramel Apple Cider Cookies are full of caramel apple flavor with a surprise of caramel in the middle. The texture of the cookies is to die for. Almost good enough to make me give up my clean linen carpet powder.

I like mine heated up in the microwave for about 5 seconds to make sure the caramel is nice and gooey. I think they would be great with a warm cup of hot cocoa. Kaela’s food blog has a new location so make sure to check her out at

1 (7.4 oz) box Alpine Spiced Apple Cider Instant Original Drink Mix (10 packets - found next to hot chocolate mix)

Preheat oven to 350°. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper (you need this so that the caramel doesn't stick to the bottom of your cookie sheet).

In a small bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon.

With an electric mixer, cream together butter, sugar, salt and all 10 packages of apple cider drink mix powder, until light and fluffy.

Beat in eggs, one at a time.

Add vanilla and mix well.

Gradually add flour mixture to butter/egg mixture. Mix until just combined.

Shape the dough into a ball, and place on parchment covered cookie sheets about 3 inches apart.

Makes around 2-3 dozen cookies. Eat at room temperature or slightly warmed in the microwave.

oh wow, I need to try this recipe. Not sure if I can find that apple cider drink mix, maybe I can tweak the recipe to add it as a liquid?

Making these right now … Wow! The dough smells heavenly, and the cookies taste even better! They are super easy to make, too. I just texted some of my friends and told them they must make these. Stat!

These sound so different, but such a great combo, that I almonst can’t not add them to my cookie list for christmas….the dough sounds good just by itself.

totally found this pin on pinterest too, so glad to find out it was really good! i saw it and totally wanted to make it immediately. yay!

and have gotten rave reviews. I’m obsessed! I used Trader Joe’s fleur de sel caramels..which are so addictive by themselves.

Oh geez, these look heavenly as well! I just told my husband that we’re going to try/make a new pumpkin/apple recipe every weekend because we only have Fall once a year

by accident, and I’m stunned why this twist of fate didn’t took place

I pinned these several months ago and was so looking forward to the gooey caramel! I made them tonight for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving dinner and was sort of bummed. I love sweet things, but these are really really sweet [1 c of sugar, 10 apple cider packets, and caramel] so I would suggest cutting down on the sugar somewhere in there. Also if you put whole caramels in, make sure you let them cool for like 15-20 mins so the caramel doesn’t come out. I ended up cutting the caramels into 6-7 chunks and mixing them in to the rest of the batter. Ah well, the important thing is that I cooked something!

Tried these today and the flavor was really good, but we had a problem with the caramel leaking out the bottom while it was baking and the cookies were a tad too soft and crumbly. Would adding a little more flour make the cookies chewier and denser?

Oh no. You could try adding more flour. Did you let them sit on the pan after baking to cool for a while? That’s key.
